The beginnings of Knokke where, however, very humble. Legend has it that a group of Irish pilgrims, monks and villains settled in the area between the 6th and the 9th century. One of them, the monk Guthago, lived a pious life and died in the village mentioned as 'Cnoc'. How much of this is true is not known.
Fact is that Knokke came into existence because of the construction of dikes that were meant to protect the area around the 'Zwin' sea-arm. In 1640 the settlement had a population of about 200 people.

Already then, the place started to attract artists, a lot of them painters (such as James Ensor, Alfred Verwee and others). The artists rented a small miller's cottage and founded there the 'Cercle des Artistes' in 1880. At the beginning of the 20th century, Knokke rapidly changed into an rather select sea-side resort when the first hotels were built.
