Belgium - La Grand-Place, Brussels (1)
Market Place, Ommegang group, Flags of the Corporations.
Sent by Raquel from Belgium.
The Grand-Place is an outstanding example of the eclectic and highly successful blending of architectural and artistic styles that characterizes the culture and society of this region. Through the nature and quality of its architecture and of its outstanding quality as a public open space, it illustrates in an exceptional way the evolution and achievements of a highly successful mercantile city of northern Europe at the height of its prosperity.
