The Grand-Place and the Town Hall

This is the “most splendid stage in the world”, Jean Cocteau used to say. Bombarded by Louis XIV in 1695, Brussels’ Grand-Place preserves its majestic testimony due to its original Gothic architecture dating from the 15th century: the Town Hall. Its sumptuously decorated façade soars towards the sky with a spire 5 meters high, topped with a representation of Saint Michael slaying a dragon. The guildhalls, which are also remarkable, unfold around this showpiece. The hall called the Maison du Roi houses a museum dedicated to the city, displaying models and works of art, and also Manneken-Pis’s wardrobe.
