"Second itinerary: The Royal Quarter" Royal Square - Place Royale Tip by DanielF
Royal Square - Place Royale, Brussels: 12 reviews and 28 photos
Much of the Eastern part of the Pentagon (the historical area of Brussels) started to be developed during the periode when Belgium made part of the Austrian Empire and, in particular, after the independence of Belgium in 1831, when the new reigning family aimed at making of Brussels a great European capital and commissioned the construction of several grand buildings inspired by the architecture of other imperial cities like Paris, London or Vienna.
Most of these buildings stand on the axis that connect the Palace of Justice with the Church of Saint Mary. Parts of this street have known better days, but there is still a lot to see and enjoy in this part of the city, which is, after all the most monumental.
Address: Place Royale, 1000 Ville de Bruxelles
