We stay in the beautiful city of Zieirkzee.
Here you see the combination of both gates.
In the middle of this picture is a glimpse into the Old Harbour
Tough gates protect the entrance to the harbor. Who the medieval Zierikzee approached by ship, must have been impressed by the defenses of the city. The moats, walls and gates made Zierikzee a strong fortress. Still Zierikzee has that character, even though the walls and a part of the gates are gone. Rightly Zierikzee is called a city like a castle. Both port gates dating originally from the 14th century. Later they were expanded, renovated and decorated. In the early 14th century the town had endured three heavy sieges. To resist new enemies, the city defence was renewed . These two ports are the result.
