Grand-Place


Situated on former marshland, it was a centre of social, economics, and politics of the town from the XII th century. More or less entirely destroyed in 48 hours on the 13th and 14th of August 1695 by the artillery of Marshal de Villeroy by order of Louis XIV (the Sun King). In less than four years however (1696 - 1700) the powerful corporations had courageously rebuild their splendid houses in a blend of Italian and Flemish "Baroque Style".
