“The magnificent Castle Marnix de Sainte Aldegonde, same league as the Loire castles.”

Castle Marnix de Sainte Aldegonde

“ My ancestors considered the estate of Bornem as a historical monument, a valuable heritage entrusted to them with the duty to keep it intact, enrich it with a personal contribution and pass it on to posterity.

May this family tradition be respected for this unique Belgian patrimony to survive. ”

Count John de Marnix de Sainte Aldegonde, 14th count of Bornem
