Town Hall, {CATEGORY}

Both the inside and the outside of this magnificent construction from 1402 repay careful study. The facade shows off Gothic intricacy at its best, complete with dozens of arched windows and sculptures. Some of these, like the drunken monks, a sleeping Moor and his harem, and St. Michael slaying a female devil, display a sense of humor - or at any rate what passed for humor in the Middle Ages - as well as skill. And the interior is lavish enough even for the extravagant tastes of the imperial aldermen who ruled over the city from here. A 66m (215-ft). tower sprouts from the middle, yet it's not placed directly in the center. A colorful but untrue legend has it that when the architect realized his "error", he jumped from the summit of the tower. The building is still the seat of the civic government, and its wedding room is a popular place to tie the knot. You can visit the interior on 40-minute tours, which start in a room full of paintings of the past foreign rulers of Brussels, who have included the Spanish, Austrians, French, and Dutch. In the spectacular Gothic Hall, open for visits when the city's aldermen are not in session - and surrounded by mirrors, presumably so each party can see what underhanded maneuvers the others are up to - you can see baroque decoration. In other chambers are 16th- to 18th-century tapestries. One of these depicts the Spanish duke of Alba, whose cruel features reflect the brutal oppression he and his Council of Blood imposed on the Low Countries, others show scenes from the life of Clovis, first king of the Franks.
