Grand Place

5 Flares 5 Flares ×

¡Buenos días!

Ya estamos en junio, este mes llega el veranito, y las vacaciones cada vez están más cerca. Ya las necesitamos, ¿verdad?

Hace dos años hice una escapada de fin de semana a Bélgica. Mi objetivo principal era conocer Brujas aunque, de paso, aproveché el viaje para visitar Bruselas.


June has arrived and summer is arriving soon. This means that holidays are closer. Do we need them, isn’t it?

I visited Belgium two years ago during a weekend. Bruges was my main interest but I spent one day visiting Brussels.

Bruselas (1)

A pesar de contar con varios sitios de interés como el Atomium o el Barrio Europeo, sin lugar a dudas mi lugar favorito de esta ciudad es la Grand Place.

La Grand Place, o Grote Market en flamenco, es la plaza principal de Bruselas y considerada una de las más bonitas del mundo por los edificios que se encuentran en ella. Entre ellos, la Casa del Rey, el Ayuntamiento, la Casa de los Duques de Brabante o las casas gremiales.

Although there are many interesting places, like the Atomium or the EU District, my favorite place is the Grand Place.

The Grand Place, or Grote Market in Flemish language, is the main square of Brussels and it’s considered one of the most beautiful squares in the world because of its buildings. Some of them are the King’s House, the city hall, the House of the Dukes of Brabant or the guild houses.

Las calles que la rodean siempre están llenas de gente, ya que además de su atractivo turístico, es zona comercial, y en ellas podéis encontrar las mejores chocolaterías de la ciudad. Si entráis en ellas en seguida os ofrecerán bombones para que los probéis. ¡Están buenísimos!

Además, muy cerca de la plaza, encontraréis dos de las figuras más famosas de la ciudad: el Manneken Pis y la Jeanneke Pis, representando a un niño y a una niña orinando.

The surrounding streets are always full of people because it’s a tourist attraction. However, it’s a commercial area too, and you can find there the best chocolate shops in the city. If you enter the shops they will offer you to taste some chocolates. They are really good!

Furthermore, you can find two famous sculptures very close to the square: the Manneken Pis and the Jeanneke Pis, representing a boy and a girl peeing.

Manneken Pis

Cualquier época del año es buena para visitarla, aunque, como habréis visto en la primera fotografía, cada dos años se cubre su asfalto adoquinado con una alfombra de flores de unos 80m x 25m que la hacen aún más espectacular. Se utilizan alrededor de un millón de begonias para cubrirla por completo. En mi caso fui en mayo y no era la época en la que la cubren, ya que siempre se celebra en agosto, y la verdad es que me quedé con bastantes ganas de verlo, así que ya tengo la excusa perfecta para volver en alguna ocasión 😉 . Si estáis interesados en asistir os recomiendo que vayáis preparando vuestro viaje con tiempo si queréis ahorrar tanto en los billetes de avión como en el hotel. Os dejo un enlace a la web de Destinia, una de las webs que utilizo para mis viajes, desde donde podréis encontrar billetes de avión a Bruselas. Aunque habrá que esperar un poquito, ya que la próxima cita es en 2016.

Mientras llega el momento, y si tenéis ganas de ver unas flores preciosas, podéis pensar en hacer una visita a su país vecino, Holanda. Os dejo en enlace a un post que escribí sobre los jardines de Keukenhof. ¡Seguro que os entran ganas de ir a visitarlo!

Always is good time to visit Brussels, although, as you have seen at the first picture, the square is covered with flowers every two years. They use one million of begonias to cover it completely. I travelled in May and it’s always covered in August, so I couldn’t enjoy the show, but I hope next time I can do it. If you are interested in visiting it  I recommend you to book flights and hotel as soon as possible  to save money. Here you have a link to the Destinia website, one of the websites I use for my trips. There you can find flight tickets to Brussels. However, you’ll have to wait some months because the next opportunity will be in 2016!

Until next summer arrives. and if you want to see beautiful flowers, you can visit its neighbour country, the Netherlands. Here you have the link to a post I wrote about Keukenhof gardens. I’m sure you’ll want to visit it!
