This beautiful square is lined with buildings that hark from the 16th to 19th centuries that are now home (on their ground floors, at least) to some of Brussels divine chocolatiers, restaurants, and antique stores. 

Each weekend there is an antiques market with a manageable handful of rows of stalls.

This is the perfect spot to stop for a coffee and treat at one of the many lovely cafes, take a little look around the antique wares, before buying a delicious chocolate selection from one of the handful of chocolatiers located here.

You can also get a hearty Belgian meal at one of the many restaurants in the streets leading off the square. Perfect for starting or rounding off a day in Brussels.
