Cortewalle Castle (Dutch: Kasteel Cortewalle) is a moated castle in Beveren in East Flanders, Belgium.

History[edit]

The location was called Ten Wallen, which became in French Cour-ten Walle, hence the name Cortewalle. The castle dates back to the 15th century, and is one of the oldest in the Waasland. It is built of white sandstone, in Flemish Renaissance style. Until the 17th century it was in the possession successively of the house of Triest. It was sold in 1671 to Joannes Francis Goubau and passed to their heirs the family de Brouchoven de Bergeyck. The house of Brouchovens sold it to the municipality of Beveren, who use it for the storage of the extensive and important De Bergeyck archives. Cortewalle Castle is situated at an elevation of 10 meters.
