October 31, 2011 by Celine Prins

The Vieille Bourse is a Flemish Renaissance extravaganza ornately decorated with caryatids and cornucopia. Built in 1653, it consists of 24 separate houses set around a richly ornamented interior courtyard that hosts a used-book market (13-19 Tue-Sun); old postcards, comic books and CDs are also on sale. In the warm months locals often gather here to play échecs (chess).
