Sacred sites and places of power, energy lines or ley lines; these subjects are no longer unknown to many people. They are present as acupuncture points in the landscape and our ancestors used those thousands of years for their rituals, initiations and celebrations.
In the past they were marked by ancient sacred stones, trees and springs, later especially by churches and chapels. Accurately placed as an expression of popular devotion, as beacons of hope and fear.
Mysterious and unknown Belgium takes us on a journey to ruined abbeys, weird churches and cathedrals, pagan sites and megalithic temples, holy wells and shrines of saints and visionaries. This is a guide for the armchair adventurer or the on-location visitor, with stories arranged in a sequence of easily found geographical locations. It is profusely illustrated with the author’s own photographs.
Enjoy your journey through unknown Belgium and discover that reality is often more fantastic than the wildest imagination.
