Discovering the Historical Cities of Flanders

Discovering the Historical Cities of Flanders

Like jewels handed down from the time of the Dukes of Burgundy, modern day Flanders possesses a string of towns of medieval origin, among them Ypres, Veurne, Bruges, Oudenaarde, Ghent, Antwerp,Lier, Mechelen and Leuven. Their town halls, belfries, churches and convents testify to the past wealth of these towns. Trade, industry and the fabrication of luxury goods brought them fame and prosperity, as did their role as ports. Their names resound with many events of history and civilisation. This book recalls and retraces these events through 100 pages of full-page photographs.
