Brussels | Sight-seeing in the Grand Place

Brussels' Grand Place is the focal point of the city; showcasing the timeless masterpiece of architecture. Flanked by rows of former guildhouses, it houses the economic and administrative hub of the city. Ideal place for markets, fairs and public events.

True enough, there was a function in the centre so a big stage was built when we visited the Grand Place. The structure blocked the view from the centre but then again, it did not stopped us from admiring the grand square We took few minutes toook some shots of the surrounding before proceeding to see the Mannekin Pis and bought some Belgium chocolate from the chocolate store.

Sometimes there is a flower display in this square.
What was Manneken Pis wearing this time? Or was he in his birthday suit?

I have fond memories of our travels to Brussels - many of them food related.
