In this district you will find some of the absolute highlights of the Brussels Art Nouveau. The patrimony exudes style and grandeur. But that's not the only reason why Bailli-Chatelain is so popular with the expat community: it's relatively close to the European institutions, contains a lot of nice shops and eateries, and the green Bois de la Cambre is nearby. This forest, an offshoot of the Sonian Forest, played a major role in the small industry that developed there: joineries. Woodworking attracted the makers of carriages, and carriage building evolved into body work, which gave way to car sales.
