Bruges, Smedenpoort

Bruges (Brugge) in West Flanders in Belgium is a lovely small city with great buildings.

We entered it through Smedenpoort, a gatehouse built over what looked like may once have been a moat:-

The streets into the centre were festooned with banners. I couldn’t quite make out what they were displaying:-
