Fort Lillo

Fort Lillo is a former fort around Antwerp and is the counterpart of Fort Liefkenshoek which was built on the other side of the Scheldt. The two forts were of great importance because together they could close off the Scheldt. The forts have been in Spanish, Dutch, French, Austrian and eventually Belgian hands. Due to port expansion, the actual village has disappeared, but the fort itself has not. Now Fort Lillo is the only fort with residential houses on the fort grounds, and a playground can also be found there.
