Kaprijke

Photo made during a visit to friends.

History:
The name Kaprijke probably comes from the Gallo-Roman name "Capriacum" which means as much as "Goed van Caprius" (Caprius is a personal name). The Romans, who built the settlement, fled German invaders in the 5th century. The current Kaprijke is first mentioned around the 13th century, after a period of six centuries of abandonment.
In 1240, Kaprijke received a certificate from Johanna van Constantinople, so it had city rights.
During the Middle Ages, a large part of it was covered with heath and marsh, and Kaprijke had to be protected against the destructive influences of the sea, this was done by the construction of the Graaf Jansdijk. It ran from Antwerp via Bentille to Knokke. However, this dyke could not prevent Kaprijke from being largely flooded in 1403.
In the late Middle Ages, Kaprijke was a relatively prosperous town, mainly due to the share of the cloth industry. The Kaprijks wool was known far beyond the borders for its high quality.
