History is in fact a few sizes too big for the charming village of Zuiddorpe. All of this area was once captured by the Spanish army – so say the remains of fortresses, entrenchments and defensive lines. The village itself seems ever so French, with its lines of linden trees and onetime Lourdes-cave. Pilgrims made excellent progress, in their journey here. Now, pilgrims of another stripe find solace in one, or other, of the village pubs. Zuiddorpe and nearby hamlet De Ratte are ensconced behind the remaining fragments of the Eighty Years’ War, the traces of Fortress Sint Jan still clear for all to see. The route also leads you along the historical Communication Line, past a handful of old watch posts.
