Belgium currently has 11 UNESCO World Heritage sites, 16 tentative sites, and 10 listings of cultural heritage. That’s a lot of heritage for one tiny country!
Spring has sprung in Belgium and flowers and gardens are on the to-do list for many visitors in Belgium. This is one of our most popular posts each year so I thought it was about time I updated it. You can find my new comments written in red below.
Andrew and I aren’t particularly religious but in our travels we’ve visited many beautiful religious buildings of various faiths. We can’t help but admire the devotion and attention to detail that has gone into these various structures. Despite your religious affiliation (or lack thereof) it’s hard to not find these places both awe-inspiring and peaceful.
Andrew and I are always on the look-out for beautiful day-trips from Brussels. For Andrew, highlights must include winding roads and ruins to explore. For me, the criteria are picturesque scenes to photograph and a garden to stroll through. At Villers Abbey (abbaye de Villers in French), in Villers-la-Ville, we found everything we were both looking for.
