Loevestein Castle

Occupying a strategic position at the confluence of the Meuse and the Waal, the medieval castle of Loevestein was built in 1368, near the town of Gorinchem, in order to receive taxes from river-going vessels. It was also used as a State prison, and has now been converted into a medieval museum.
