Surroundings of the city of Sluis

The ramparts date from the 14th century, when Sluis flourished as a trading town due to its location on the Zwin, then an important estuary and waterway. Towards the end of the 15th century the silting up of the Zwin caused the trade and prosperity of Sluis to decline sharply. However, Sluis remained important as a fortress during the Eighty Years' War (1568 to 1648). The current ramparts date from this time.
In 1864 the Zwinpolder was reclaimed, and the original harbour town came to lie 'dry'. Today, in addition to its cultural-historical value, you will find all kinds of plant and animal species on the ramparts.

I hope you like it,
