Spinolaschans - Breda

N 51.6257238 / E 4.774609

The Spinolaschans or Grote Schans was built in 1624 by the Spaniards to prevent Breda from being besieged by the Staatsen. We now know that this did not really work, since the Siege of Breda took place in 1637. Where in the past the Spaniards and the Staatsen fought for a city, flora and fauna now prevails. The Spinolaschans has been designated a national monument and is managed by Staatbosbeheer. You can now cycle and walk in complete freedom over the line wall with four points.
