Mosaics and sgraffito in the Georges Henri neighbourhood (fully booked)
This tour gives you the chance to have a closer look at the many colours featured in the less grandiose examples of urban heritage on display in the Georges Henri neighbourhood. The neighbourhood’s façades are full of colour, with their sgraffito panels, mosaics, cement tiles, stained-glass windows and multicoloured brickwork. The area is also home to some of Brussels’ few remaining painted wall advertisements, bearing the legends Sano and L’Alsacienne – some remarkable examples of a now-forgotten art.
In cooperation with the Heritage Promotion Department of the Municipality of Woluwe-Saint-Lambert/Sint-Lambrechts-Woluwe and Arkadia.
