I’ve never managed to take the picture of Gouvy that I originally wanted to. It was a view of a street, that caught my eye while driving through the settlement. But I didn’t have the possibility to stop the car and capture the moment. And of course, the second time when I passed through the village, it wasn’t the same. I mean, the street hasn’t changed, but maybe my point of view – yes, and I didn’t want to capture this view.
But I this day took another photo instead:
Then I long time thought this is just a municipal administrative building, before I one day had to publish the picture and find out this is a castle (not to forget that we are yet in Belgium).
Château De Potter, or Château de Gouvy is a manor house built between 1875 and 1899.
In 2014, it was acquired by the community.
The 18th century Church of St. Aubin (although on its façade stands the year 1849, this is the historical information I’ve found about it) was closed,
but see what I’ve found – beautiful old tombstones in the old graveyard around it.
The coat of arms of the Scheurette Family, initiators of the construction of the church.
