The Grand Place, Hotel de Ville

As many of you may know from the title of this update, my one and only card for today is from Brussels, Belgium. It is a card showing The Grand Place and the Town Hall. Grand Place is the central market square of Brussels. The square is one of the most memorable landmarks in Brussels. The Town Hall , shown on the card was started in 1402 and completed in 1420. Grand Place was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list in 1998. This card was sent by Johan O of Vlaanderen, Belgium. He is a frequent reader of this blog and took it upon himself to send a postcard.Thanks Johan. Johan used a nice stamp from 2009. It is one from a multi-sheet of 6 featuring World Cultural Heritage.
A short update for today. take care .
