An archaeological research was carried out in the buildings located in the rue du Vieux Marché aux Grains, of which part of the dividing walls are made up of the trajectory of the first Brussels city wall. The uncovering of the masonry has revealed some remains of this defensive element erected at the beginning of the 13th century, as well as the remains of houses dating from the Middle Ages and Modern Times. This visit will provide an insight into seven centuries of urban development. It can be complemented by a walk in the old harbor district (to be booked separately).
