    Small bustling town on the Dutch coast. The Polderhuis is worth a visit

    Westkapelle with a Willibrorduskirche are already mentioned in 1071. About 150 years later, in 1223, the fishing village receives the city rights. In 1253 the Battle of Westkapelle, the military culmination of the Flemish War of Succession, took place near the village. Due to the constant threat of protective dunes by wind and sea, it was decided to 1432 to 1470 a protective dike and a new church southeast of the village to build (Wikipedia).
