I lived in Leuven in 1987 - 1988 and used to join Misa at Sint Kwinten Kerk at 10:00 Sunday morning, I was 23 years old, KUL student at the time... from Indonesia. I wonder if this lovely Church is still open today. I plan to visit Leuven to join the Misa at this Church. It was Vader Reinhard van de Berg in my time there but to bad that I could not meet him when I visited Leuven with my wife... long years ago. I am now almost 60 years old and waiting a chance to visit Leuven again.

Definitely one of the most stunning churches in Leuven. Friendly and active community which hails from all continents. Beautiful, reverent liturgy. Make sure to stay after mass for coffee, cake and a chat!

Doune Castle

Doune Castle was originally built in the thirteenth century, then probably damaged in the Scottish Wars of Independence, before being rebuilt in its present form in the late 14th century by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany (c. 1340–1420), the son of King Robert II of Scots, and Regent of Scotland from 1388 until his death. Duke Robert"s stronghold has survived relatively unchanged and complete, and the whole castle was traditionally thought of as the result of a single period of construction at this time. The castle passed to the crown in 1425, when Albany"s son was executed, and was used as a royal hunting lodge and dower house.

In the later 16th century, Doune became the property of the Earls of Moray. The castle saw military action during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and Glencairn"s rising in the mid-17th century, and during the Jacobite risings of the late 17th century and 18th century.
