History teaches us that Brussels has long benefitted from large swathes of garden space and even agricultural land, within the second city walls. Through the projection of old images, you will see the extent to which nature was present in the city in the vicinity of large estates, palaces and monasteries. A closer look at the places depicted will guide your gaze and understanding more effectively than any book. The study by the Association du Patrimoine Artistique also extends to surrounding municipalities which, under Brussels jurisdiction since the Middle Ages, served as an area for market gardening supplying the needs of the city. The objective of the planned projection will be to provide greater clarification in pinpointing the location of old views and, in this way, to reach those living in these municipalities who are interested in their history. Old maps will help to situate the places for which there is a range of iconography available from the 16th and 17th centuries.
