Kortrijk is a town famous for the textile industry. It is not a town largely visited by tourists, and this adds
to the charm. It is located on the River Leie and a visit is highly recommended. Notable sights are the Begijnhof, the
Markt, the Belfry, Sint Maartens Church and the Broeltoren. The Broeltoren are ancient, one was built in the 14th century
and the other in 1411. They were built as a fortress to defend Kortrijk from possible attack.
