Breweries, Brugge: 39 reviews and 58 photos
As I conversed with my new found Dutch friends at Lissewege, I learnt that they were on their way to somewhere nearby that had, reputedly, the oldest and largest barn in Europe. You could also get something to eat there. Since I was about to have lunch in Lissewege anyway this sounded like a better idea.
We rode off down the road through the enchanting country lanes until we reached the barn (2,3 & 5) which has a history dating back to the 15th century, particularly the massive oak beams that support the structure.
It had three layers; the lower one for livestock, the first floor for straw and the upper floor for grain.
The buildings nearby where the restaurant and living quarters are today only date back to around the 17th and 18th centuries. Fairly young really.
There are other outbuildings also and everywhere you can find sculptures (pic 1).
