The town of Veere is in Zeeland, near Middelburg

The town of Veere is in Zeeland, near Middelburg on the – former – island of Walcheren. It has a small picturesque harbour which once gave direct access the the North Sea, with sheltered waterways for vessels to proceed north-east to Dordrecht (near Rotterdam) on the R. Maas or south-east to Antwerp on the R. Schelde. Old fortifications have decided its lay-out, dominated by the huge bulk of the Church of Our Lady (or ‘Grote Kerk’), which once provided barrack-space for Napoleon’s troops, and graced by the elegant spire of its late-Gothic Town Hall. for more click here
