Yes, a very grim place. Wouldn’t like to think of what went on inside those walls!

Is this still a part of the Royal Trust or does it belong to someone else?

The Gravensteen (Dutch; literally "Castle of the Counts") is a medieval castle at Ghent, East Flanders in Belgium. The current castle dates from 1180 and was the residence of the Counts of Flanders until 1353. It was subsequently re-purposed as a court, prison, mint, and even as a cotton factory. It was restored over 1893–1903 and is now a museum and a major landmark in the city.

Thankfully it survived the upheavals of the 16th Century and the French Revolutionary forces in the 1790's .
