The alchemy of the Grand-Place

Brussels' Grand-Place is an invitation to explore the secret world of alchemy, esoteric sciences and symbolism, where it seems that the alchemists, architects and sculptors of the time have left clues to their knowledge for those with sufficient interest in discovering their secrets. The images engraved on the façades are extremely enigmatic. Among the proliferation of Baroque motifs decorating the façades, are a number of figures relating to alchemy. Its gold bedecked buildings are testimony to the fact that the " Philosopher’s stone " was invented here. But is it all really believable? Your guide Claude will endeavour to explain his idea of the "Grand Œuvre" to you.
