Saint-Gilles Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 8 photos
When Guillian once told me she loved Brussels I really was wondering what she was talking about... until... until you get to know what she really meant... Saint Gillis!
Let me tell you that if there would be a place I would not mind living (if I could chose the street ofcourse) it would be at Saint Gilles.
This place is special: some parts even reminds me of Paris with the magnificient houses and the hundreds of terasses.
For those who have a weaknes for Art Nouveau... this is your kind of city!
Yes... Sint Gillis is not a Brussels comunity but a village and they really wanted to show it by building a huge castle like city hall facing towards Brussels as if they wanted to say... you keep there and no further!
I have since made quite some trips and wondered around. Through magnificient streets and then turning around the corner you find yourself in a run down street, a bit further it changes again and the restaurants :) I found already a few nice ones!
ok I hope to find the energy to add a few tips the coming err... weeks? months? years :)
