Halles aux draps

Interesting
The long rectangular cloth halls, surrounding two narrow courtyards, were completed in 1304, then rebuilt in sandstone in the original style after First World War destruction. Seen from the Grand-Place Albert 1, their 125m-long façade is broken by a square belfry flanked by four turrets.
