  • Prodigal Son Returns to Ath

    In 1667, Ath was conquered in a single day by the army of Louis XIV and became the first French city of the Spanish Netherlands. Soon after, Vauban built new fortifications, which included eight bastions. The city suffered again at the hands of the French army in 1745. At the end of the 18th century, Ath counted about 7,300 inhabitants but the population count decreased in the first half of the 19th century. No wonder we left, but returning in 2024 was a truly amazing experience. We will definitely plan a future visit.
