16/09/2017 - 17/09/2017

Berchem-Sainte-Agathe/Sint-Agatha-Berchem began to make a name for itself as its illustrated tile factories developed. Façades of buildings evoke fields of wheat, panoramas, halcyons, lilacs, seagulls, fish, as well as sundials or small monkeys. On this walking tour you will learn about the production of tiles for which local factories are renowned and about a skill that’s worth preserving.
