Heusden-Brabant / The Netherlands : 3 postmills, which, at one time, dominated the city’s skyline, were put back to where they once stood. The first mill was replaced in 1971, and with the replacing of the other two mills in 1973 and 1975 this town regained its unique appearance. A stroll along the fortifications surrounding the city will take about an hour. That is, if you can tear yourself away from the wonderful sights, the unique views of this ancient city and the beautiful windmill

The three major influences in the region, Roman, Moorish and Spanish, have left the town with a rich tapestry of architectural gems. The highlight is the opulent Spanish-baroque style that gives the town its character and which the civic authorities have worked hard to restore and maintain. There is…
