La Grand Place

⬅️⬅️⬅️ This is Brussels city main square: La Grand Place. Unbelievably grand!
Grote Markt in Dutch or Great Square in English, La Grand Place is the central, geographic and historic heart of Brussels. It's also considered as one of the most memorable squares in Europe.
This lively cobbled square is part of the most beautiful seventeenth-century architectural ensemble in Belgium. The main square is made up by numerous impressive guild houses that will leave you speechless.

In 1695 the French army bombarded Brussels and destroyed most buildings housed in La Grand Place. They were all rebuilt except the Town Hall.
