  Guild Houses

Stated as the most beautiful square in europe, I have to agree. The Grand Place is definitely a showpeice of Gothic Medieval Architecture at its best. The various guildhouses are where the different tradesmen met during the Middle Ages and Rennaisance (12th-16th Centuries). One side is dominated by the ornate Hotel de Ville, the town hall. This magnificent building dates to the 13th and 15th Century and is topped by a gorgeous spire.

Address: Grand Place, 1000 Ville de Bruxelles
