In 2011, I travelled to Brussels, a pretty town with a confused identity.

Brussels has various examples of Brabantine gothic, including the cathedral, which is French in plan, while having the sheer verticality of English perpendicular gothic.

The monumental Palace Of Justice, by Joseph Poelaert, dominates the Brussels skyline. Sadly at the time of my visit it was under heavy restoration.

The Grand Place (or Grote Markt) marks the centre of Brussels. On one side there is the Town Hall, and on the other, the Bread House, both in Brabantine gothic. The diverse other buildings on the square are guild halls built in the 18th century.
