The Splendid Market Place in Brussels

One of the main stops of any Brussels itinerary is the magnificent Market Place. Situated in the heart of the city, the location was formerly used to trade goods and is now a major tourist attraction in the city, as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

City Hall

Also known by the name of Grand Place, the square is encircled by exceptional examples of lavish architecture, some of them dating back to the 15th century.
