Lissewege

Lissewege - A picturesque village with whitewashed houses & cobbled streets surrounded by open countryside and a canal. The Church of Our Lady an early-gothic brickstone church C13 is the focal point. A service was in progress so we could not enter to see the interiors which contain "fine furnishings (organ-case, pulpit and roodloft dd. 1562 by Walram Romboudt, paintings by J. Van Oost, M. Van Duvenede en J. Maes, miraculous Madonna-statue (1625)".

The tower is accessible during the summer months only, 166 feet high with lovely views. It is flat on top as originally used as a 'lighthouse' with fires lit at night to guide the ships between Bruges & Zeebrugge.
