A leopard doesn’t change its spots!


16/09/2017 - 16/09/2017

In Saint-Gilles, hidden parks, ponds, grottos, bridges and waterfalls appear like 18th century follies, sometimes rendered in strange panoramas and romantic refuges. All these small things that have been reshaped by man, mimicking Mother Nature, conceal undeniable know-how and expertise. In an about-turn, nature is making a strong comeback and reinvading the urban landscape: stand in awe before the mini waterfalls in Square Ambiorix/Ambiorixsquare, or the new walkway over the Ravel on Avenue de Tervuren/Tervurenlaan, which once connected the city centre to Tervuren. A bus tour that will highlight the strength of nature combined with the urban landscape.

In cooperation with Itinéraires, sur les Sentiers de l’Histoire.
