Porte de Gand

On the end the street of Gand, where one finds many restaurants.

This is all what remains of the walls and dates back to 1617 (Spanish period)

The façade offers to the visitor an example of construction "larded" : the brick punctuated in a manner symmetrical and uniform silexstones.

It's a restaurant upstairs


Elle termine la rue de Gand, où on trouve de nombreux restaurants.

C'est tout ce qui reste des remparts et date de 1617 (période Espagnole)

La façade offre au visiteur un exemple de construction "lardée": la brique entrecoupée de façon symétrique et régulière de silex.

Il y a un restaurant à l'étage
