Entitled – Dinant. The Valzin Chateau, with view of Park.
Below the picture an inscription reads:
Dinant. – This pretty little town is built upon a rocky, castle-crowned height near the Meuse.
The population is about 6,428.
One can obtain a fine view from the iron bridge which crosses the river to the suburb of St. Medard on the left bank.
On the Continent one is for ever meeting Cathedrals of Notre Dame.
This particular one at Dinant is a thirteenth century edifice with a tower 200ft. high.
The old Hotel de Ville (another ubiquitous building) is situated on the Meuse.
At the back of the church are 408 steps cut in the rock, and leading to the citadel, which was sold in 1879 for 7,000 francs.
Excellent views of the town and river are obtained from the garden of the Casino, in the Rue Grande, which rises in terraces; and also from the Jardin de Montfat, in the Rue-en-Rhee, close to the handsome Renaissance Palais de Justice.
This garden also contains a grotto called the Grotto de Montfat.
We now leave Belgium for Holland, our first call being at Rotterdam, at the confluence of the Rotte and Maas, 40 miles from Amsterdam, and three hours’ journey from Antwerp.
If you buy an item and then see it relisted this is because we occasionally have more than one available, each page is
