The Marolles, once known as Mariam Colentes

Explore the lively Marolles neighbourhood, that was home, in medieval times, to circus travellers, homeless people, lepers and other outcasts who had no right to reside within the city walls. Today, this neighbourhood is known for its various antiques dealers and curiosity shops, bars and restaurants. Did you know that Andreas Vesalius, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Auguste Rodin and Toots Thielemans have all lived in these streets at some point? You will also discover a range of wonderful and unique buildings, including the 'Mount of Piety' pawn shop, the beautifully renovated Wine Palace and the school for young children designed by Victor Horta.
