Photographer's Note

I took this picture on the beautiful narrow street of Durbuy.

This is a contribution to my theme Streets of the world

Durbuy is a city and municipality located in the Belgian province of Luxembourg. On 1 January 2006 the municipality had 10,531 inhabitants. The total area is 156.61 km², giving a population density of 67 inhabitants per km².

Durbuy was first noted in history when its 11 th Century castle was constructed. As a result, Durbuy formed a key part of the defences of Luxembourg and La Roche. In medieval times Durbuy was an important centre of commerce and industry. In 1331 the town was elevated to the rank of city by John I, Count of Luxemburg, and King of Bohemia. It still is the smallest city in Belgium.

Tourism and recreation are its main activities nowadays.
