Brielle : Michelin's recommendations
An old stronghold on the island of Voorne, Brielle was a working port at the mouth of the Meuse. It was also a place famous for the victory of the Sea Beggars (who left England in 1572) against the occupying Spaniards. Today, Brielle is a tourist centre profiting from the nearby lake of Brielle ( Brielse Meer ). The town has kept part of its past in the remains of its fortifications, now promenades and peaceful quays lined with old houses ( Maarland ).
