Het Steen, Antwerp, Belgium

The medieval fortrees Het Steen in the center of the old town of Antwerp, is the city's oldest building. It was built against the Viking incursions in the early middle ages. From 1303 till 1827 it was in use as a prison and then became the Museum of Archeology in 1980.
This beautiful card was sent by Gerda Theunis for the WiP Building Swap.
