There are still about 30 people living in this small town but most people working here, are living in the towns around the harbour.
I was told that these old white houses were once built for the soldiers who stayed here at the fortress during the French occupation.
There is one little church in the village. It was built at the end of the 18th century. In 1817 the church was closed because of some quarrel between the village and the Dutchmen. In 1830, the church was used as an army barrack, storage room and kitchen. It is back used as a church since 1839.
In front of the church, in the middle of the little square, you will find a statue in remembrance of the men killed in battle during the world wars.
Lillo has a small marina. If you want to dock here, you have to take into account that low tide is very low, meaning that your boat will be lying in the mud and you will not be able to get away.
Here you can find lots of historical documents, antique maps of the Antwerp region and many photographs.
Saturday, Sunday & Holidays between Eastern and 31 Octobre, from 13 till 18 h.
