Walking around Damme on the dike with casemate.

Casemates are storage places for ammunition. The largest casemate can still be seen from the herring market. This building was erected in 1616 during the construction of the fortifications around Damme. The Lieve came into the city between 1616 and 1660 along here. De Lieve was the canal that connected Ghent to the Zwin. This canal had previously been slightly to the north of the city in the Zwin, but from 1616 onwards, for military reasons, it was moved within the city. Through the casemate the canal entered the city, where inland barges ended up in the Damme harbor basin via the sas. The sas van de Lieve has been excavated a few decades ago and can be seen at the end of Sint-Jacobstraat. The casemate is not accessible to the public.
I hope that you enjoy it
