Route Veurne-Nieuwpoort

Surprising Flemish Masters in Situ in the west of Flanders
Vlaamse Meesters in Situ Westhoek

Where the river IJzer debouches in the North Sea, lies Nieuwpoort, a beautiful city on the Belgian Coast, on the western border of the rural west of Flanders. The ideal decor for an invigorative cycling tour, feel the fresh sea breeze blowing through your hair! Surrounded by nature, in the middle of the city, the Judgment of Cambyses is hidden in the Church of Our Lady. It was painted by the talented Flemish Master Vigor Boucquet! 

Curious for more? Discover more work from the same master in the Church of Saint Walpurga, in Veurne. A big part of the churches in this city was destroyed by the iconoclasm in the sixteenth century, but a magnificent fourteenth-century part of the Church of Saint Walpurga miraculously survived. 

Last but not least, in Wulveringem, a beautiful borough of Veurne, another talented master can be found in the Church of the Assumption of Our Lady. End the day peaceful in the small, picturesque village. 

Discover the Flemish Masters in Situ on your own, or visit the different sites with the planned cycling tour.
