"Pharmacie Charles Delacre" Art Nouveau of Brussels Tip by Willettsworld
Art Nouveau of Brussels, Brussels: 25 reviews and 61 photos
Paul Saintenoy, (who also designed the Old England building just further up the street), designed this corner house at Coudenberg, No.64-66, in 1895 mixing renaissance and gothic styles, and incorporating a rather special sundial. It was ? and still is ? a pharmacy, first occupied by Charles Delacre, who believed that chocolate was the best curative. He sold so much of his chocolate that he soon opened a separate chocolate store next door. Finally he relocated his factory to larger premises, but the pharmacy remained.
