The Essential
On the western side of Brussels, Anderlecht has a charming centre around St-Guidon and Astrid Park, as well as industrial areas along the canal, and a former abattoir which is now a market. Thanks to football, certain capitals have districts that are almost as famous as the cities themselves: Boca (Buenos Aires), Chelsea (London) and, in the case of Brussels, Anderlecht with its Constant Vanden Stock stadium. Founded in 1908, Royal Sporting Club Anderlecht has won many trophies.
