Antwerp Stock Exchange (Handelsbeurs)

Surrounded by a group of houses that it dominates with its glass dome, the Stock Exchange gives onto four streets in a cross formation. The first stock exchange was built by Domien de Waghemakere. It soon outgrew the place and another building by the same architect was added in 1531. The place was very busy during the 16C but was destroyed by a fire in 1858, and rebuilt in 1872 in the same style. The building is currently undergoing works and part of it is to be turned into a luxury hotel.
