I decided today to post some close up pictures of the Town Hall so you could see the fantastic work of art it is. Here’s a look at the ‘hotel de ville’ from a distance. It dates back quite some time since it’s first foundation-stone was laid in 1401.
The left wing
Now the right wing
Here on top of the main entrance you can see sculptures of the demon being slain by St. Michael
The Archangel Saint Michael is a key figure as he is the patron saint of Brussels
The amount of detail in these sculptures is fascinating
The gargoyles overlooking us have always been one of my old time favorites
More of these sculptures…
