‘Kortrijk - Broel Towers during the blue hour’

I couldn't resist taking a photo of the Broel Towers during the blue hour as well.

But maybe you prefer the day view in WS2.
That’s actually a very classic photo of Kortrijk that you often find on postcards. To my surprise, no one else had shown this classic view on TE before. Of course Kortrijk isn’t that much visited by foreigners.


The towers are a remaining part of the medieval wall surrounding the city.
The oldest tower, the 'Speytorre' (right in the photo) was built together with the Broel Bridge in 1385 to control traffic on the Lys.
The second tower, the ‘Ingelborch Tower’ (on the left) dates from 1415 and served as a weapons depot. It was intended for the use of artillery. Hence its second name 'Armorietorre'.
