The area around Saint John Place has some of the finest examples of Beaux Arts architecture in the historic heart of Brussels, including the former department store of the Galeries Nationales (nowadays hosting offices) and the Parliament of Brussels (on Lombard Street). The latter used to be the residence of the Governor of the Province of Brabant.

In the centre of the square stands a monument to Gabrielle Petit, a Belgian spy during WWI.

Address: Many to be found in Brussels
Directions: Located throughout the city.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
