Thank for your visit.


Seven year ago I brought a visit to Durbuy, took these picture in a narrow street of these little city, situated within the borders of the Belgian Province of Luxembourg, played an important defensive role up until the 14th century, for its location was a strategic point as the frontier between two provinces.


History:
The small town was protected by massive walls and a castle implanted on a rocky headland surrounded by the Ourthe River.
This defensive front stretched all the way to the town of La Roche.
In this way, each era has left its mark on the region:
Roman money and artefacts, tombs of the Franks, as well as feudal constructions like the castle of Durbuy, (towers in background) built in the 11th Century. With its circular enclosure that has since disappeared, it protected the town whose layout has remained intact to this day.
