Egmont Palace was constructed in the 16th-century and completely renovated in the 18th-century by the wealthy Arenberg family. The Belgian government welcomes the international heads of government here and organizes high-level international meetings. For most of us, this building is well-known for its beautiful architecture. The Palace is not accessible to the public, only the gardens and the neighboring Egmont Parc can be visited.
The Place des Palais is a square that separates Parc De Bruxelles and the Palais Royal. Léopold II made changes in the palace and hence the Place des Palais was made a seperate entity from it.
This small yet pretty park is near the Raad van State (Council of State) and the 19-century Église Saint-Joseph. Square Frère-Orban has a beautiful monument built in the late 1890s depicting economic and political freedoms in the form of two women on the sides of the plinth. The life-size statue of Walthère Frère-Orban on top of the pedestal gives it a majestic look. This park has many shady areas to relax.
La facciata della chiesa (consacrata nel 1787) fu progettata dagli architetti Barré e Guimard.
Facing the Egmont Palace, on Rue aux Laines, Egmont Park is home to several sculptures. Of all the statues within, the statues of Peter Pan and that of Price Charles-Joseph de Ligne are much adored. A slice of peace and quiet amid the bustle of the city, the park makes for a nice walk or a short picnic, no matter how old or young you are. Parc d'Egmont also incorporates interesting attractions that seem like they're right out of a fairy tale like an old Gothic well and an Orangerie, to name a few.
