Tour guide in Bruxelles
The narrow path leading to the Beguine convent enhances still further the intimacy of this site, which once offered refuge to eight Beguine nuns. The convent was founded in 1252 by William, Doyen of the Chapter of Anderlecht. The inner garden, with its covered well, is flanked by two rows of 14th century maisonettes.
This museum offers two visits in one: an "archaeological" discovery, since it is housed in what used to be the Waucquez warehouse (built by Victor Horta in 1906 to house a wholesale draper?s); not to mention the building?s highly original contents - comic strips - in a setting that provides space and light in abundance.
In the building of Belgium’s Royal Museums of Fine Arts, visitors can explore the 2,500 m2 of the Magritte Museum.
This excellent museum occupies the old Art Nouveau buildings of the Old England stores (3000m2 of exhibition space) and is one of the biggest collection of instruments in the world.
