... but so pittoresque, romantic
By accident i visited this small village, coming from Blankenberge and the Sand Sculpture Festival.
The fieste of the light was in full preparation and i stopped, immediately attracted by the charm of the narrow streets, the white painted houses, cosy pubs and restaurants.
The market place, dominated by the Church of our Lady was full with statues made of made by various artists.
This tip is for DON, get your bike and cycle around the area of Damme and Lissewege (pic1)

Lissewege is a lovely and peaceful town full of whitewashed houses grouped around the church. Because of these white chalked houses, Lissewege is also called the white village.
The town also has a quaint small canal. It was the former trade route between Lissewege and Bruges.
Favorite thing: I noticed a lot of art in the streets of Lissewege, not sure whether it was temporarily or permanent art but it gave the town an extra interesting touch.
Approaching the village, this will be the first view of the small town. You can already see the Church of Our Lady from far away.
The impressive early-gothic brickstone church with its flat tower (typical for that area) was built between 1230 and 1270.
