500 years - That's how old the parish of Saint-Géry is, this place in the heart of Brussels, which, according to legend, was at the origin of the modern Brussels we know today. 500 years is not, however, the age of Place Saint-Géry as we know it today with its Halles. What was there before the construction of this old market? The Halles Saint-Géry take you on a journey back in time through the rich history of its foundations. They take you on a stroll through the different eras that shaped this square, and give you a taste of daily life in each of its historical periods.
