Sainte-Walburge in Summer

By Ruben

BELGIUM – In this post, I will show you some summer pictures of Sainte-Walburge, a neighbourhood on the hillside to the north of the centre of Liège.

1. Rue de l’Académie, 2016-07-06
A urban semi-motorway that was built in 1960’s separates Sainte-Walburge from the neighbourhood of Sainte-Marguerite (which you see here)
2. Rue de l’Académie, 2016-07-06
The Hocheporte bus station was also built here, on the site were the Hocheporte city gate stood until 1821, when it was demolished by the Dutch regime (who were occupying Belgium at the time). I never understood the purpose of this bus station, which is situated 200 metres uphill from the Saint-Lambert bus station

Now looking towards Sainte-Walburge, Rue de Campine (left) and Montagne Sainte-Walburge, the two main streets that wind up the hill through the neighbourhood
4. Rue Hocheporte, 2016-07-06
Situated just behind Rue de Campine, Rue Hocheporte used to go through the Hocheporte. The higher part (this part) was outside the city walls, but as you can see by some of the houses, is still pretty old
