Sablon and Place Royale, Brussels

22 Feb

Remember the Hop On Hop Off service at Brussels? It has two routes that you can take. Both starts at the central station. On this journey, Piggletino took the ‘Europe line’. Some sights would include:

…Petit Sablon Square across the street from the Church, surrounded by 48 small bronze representing ancient professions such as masons, sculptors, etc…

And Place Royale, or the King’s square of Brussels…

…where of course, the Royal Palace of Brussels is! The Palace is situated across the Brussels Park, where many locals visit for a jog or a family day’s out. The Royal Palace is not the residence of of the royal family. It stands grandly at the cobblestoned square where the Palace of Coudenberg once was.

While the scout was watching the changing of guards take place, Piggletino took a photo with the Palace! What a grand sight!
