A friend brought me to this Flemish city with his car.

Deinze originated as Donsa or Dunsa. What this means is still unknown, but it may refer to a moss-rich area. This earliest mention can be found in the year 840. Saint Poppo, the Abbot of Stavelot, was born in 978 in Deinze. He later donated relics to his hometown, which he brought with him from his pilgrimages to the Holy Land. These relics are embedded in the wall of the Church of Our Lady.
In the feudal age Deinze was a seigniory in the hands of several prominent families; Poppo's father is the oldest known. Then there was Iwein van Aalst and his son, who held the seigniory in fief from the Counts of Flanders. Then came the Courtenay family, the Countess of Bar and the Count of Luxembourg.
Around 1300 Deinze was sold by Walram van Luxemburg to Robrecht van Bethune and it came back into the possession of the counts of Flanders. It did not last long because it became the property of Robrecht van Kessel, who again left it to the counts of Bar.
The early Gothic parish church of Our Lady was built in the 13th century. At the end of the 18th century, it was furnished with valuable furniture and various liturgical vessels.

I hope you like it
