Tour noire

la tour Noire BRUXELLES

La tour noire or in English the black tower located right behind the St. Catherine Church is one of the few remnants of the old town wall that was demolished in the 16th Century. The tower was saved from demolition simply because it could be used as a storage facility and nowadays houses a little museum devoted to the old port of Brussels.
