The end of the afternoon was approaching. It was time to go back to Antwerp. This time we all went to the left river bank, to an area known as Saint Anna’s Beach. The name of Saint Anna refers to the old village that was located here. It had to make way first for holiday homes and later for huge…

The Other Antwerp – The Village That Resists

By | 0 Comments

As I have mentioned before, some villages had to make way for the expansion of the harbor of Antwerp. As you can imagine, not everybody was willing to move.
