Gaasbeek Castle is a well-preserved medieval fortress in the village of Gaasbeek in Belgium . The castle was built in the 13th century to protect the Duchy of Brabant. The family of Horne reconstructed the castle in the beginning of the 16th century, after it was destroyed by Brussels soldiers. From 1565, the Gaasbeek Castle was in hands of count Egmont, who gained it along with feudal rights for 17 surrounding villages. Three years after that, count Egmont was killed due to treason of the Spanish king Philip II. In the upcoming centuries, the Gaasbeek Castle was inhabited by several noble families. From 1980, it has been the property of the Flemish government. The biggest attraction is the collection of valuable paintings by the famous painter Peter Paul Rubens and his full valid testament. The castle complex also includes a charming park that occupies 50 hectares. Gaasbeek Castle is open to the public all year round.
