Windmills have been associated with the inner town of Bruges since the 14th century. Today there are not too many mills remaining. The Bonne-Chière molen stands next to a canal, on the edge of the town center. Constructed in 1844, it functions as corn and oil mill. In 1903, the Bonne-Chièremolen was overthrown in a violent storm, with parts of the mill ending up in the canal. In 1906, it was rebuilt. The mill still stands as you can see, but is not open to visitors. It stands on a mound so, without the possibility of going back any further, I had to use my wide angle lens.
