Usually when you visit the Grand'Place in Brussels your stay in the middle and admire the beautiful buildings of this square place.
I wanted to show you some details which usually an occasional visitor has no time to discover because this place is really very impressive in its entire architecture.
Above this bank was a dancing place where I used to go when I was 18 !
Of course at that time I had never noticed this beautiful sculpture of Romulus and Remus the founders of Rome, who were raised by a wolf.
I had never noticed this spitting statue either which is a fountain with drinkable water.
A very old sculptured tablet of the very old shoemakers, a Swiss company which still exists today
little dolls dressed in Brussels' lace
A place where ladies have their afternoon beer and chat
houses built against a church
with a man looking out of his window
a shop with 250 kinds of Belgium Beer
And the golden Statues on the top of the buildings.
