Oh, what a great piece of fine architecture. This House of the Dukes of Brabant, located on the Grote Markt.

This impressive front house (1698) with a beautifully sculptured fronton, was designed by the Italian architect Palladio.

It looks as it is one big house, but in fact it houses six different Guild Houses.

The pilasters are decorated with busts of the Dukes of Brabant.
