Tongeren, Belgium

This card I received from Gerda Theunis for the WiP Extremes Swap. It shows Tongeren in Belgium, the country's oldest city. It was founded in 15 BC and named Aduatuca Tungorum by the Romans. Before the Romans the area was inhabited by the Eburones. Under the influence of Saint Servatius, Bishop of Tongeren, the city became the center of a Christian diocese.
