To see around

The Place de la Monnaie takes its name from the Monnayerie of the Dukes of Brabant; this is where our lords used to mint money from the first quarter of the 15th century on the site of the old Hotel d'Ostrevent. The building occupied almost the entire width of the square.
It is after its destruction in 1531 that the place takes the aspect of a square.
The Théâtre de la Monnaie was then built there. The current building dates from 1855 and is the work of Joseph Poelaert.
For 70 years the square will have a very classical aspect: two imposing buildings facing each other, late 19th century buildings surrounding the theater on both sides (only those on the Rue Neuve side remain today) facing the post office.
The square was a promenade connecting the very commercial rue Neuve and rue des Fripiers.
