Grote Markt
The Grote Markt is the center of the old city and is surrounded by the town hall and buildings knows as the houses of the guilds. Most of these buildings were rebuilt after a devastating fire in 1576. The renaissance style town hall was built in 1564 and survived the fire. Many of these buildings house restaurants and/or bars on the ground level with outdoor terraces making this a great place to hang out and people watch on a nice day. In the center of this city square is the famous Brabo Fountain. This statue was sculpted by Jef Lambeaux in 1887 to commemorate the legend of Silvius Brabo who slayed the giant Antigoon.
