Brielle
The Essential
A former stronghold on the island of Voorne, Brielle was once an active port at the mouth of the Meuse. It was also a place famous for the victory of the Sea Beggars (expelled from England in 1572) against the occupying Spanish forces. Today, Brielle is a tourist centre which has taken advantage of the proximity of Lake Brielle (Brielse Meer). The town has retained some of the remains of its fortifications, now transformed into esplanades, and its tranquil quaysides lined with old houses.
