Our guide Lea leading Zohara and us into a dark, narrow and deep alley in Kortrijk.....will we ever return or come out the other side?? See more....
Yes, we did come out and enjoy Kortrijk.

One of two towers are all that remain of the cities fortifications. Built sometime in the 12th or 13th century.

Here you can see two of the murals in the "Chapel of the Counts", with mural paintings of the "Forestiers" (I have as yet to discover what this word means) and the Counts of Flanders. It is a part of the Church of Our Lady Of Kortrijk which was built in the 13th century.

    I spent a night in Kortrijk in August :-) I was looking for a place to break my Paris - Breda journey and remembered that many VTers have visited this town before. I was happy with my choice!
