In the 13C, Ypres was one of the most powerful towns in Flanders, together with Bruges and Ghent. It was partly destroyed in 1914-18, then successfully rebuilt in the neo-Gothic style. Stroll through its pleasant streets, admire the imposing Cloth Hall, and stop for a quiet moment by the memorials dedicated to the First World War, all the time following the fortifications designed by Vauban. The town is also renowned for its Cat Festival (Kattenfeest).
