Molenbeek, melting pot of cultures and flavours
E-Guides offers you an unexpected route, combining Molenbeek history which dates back to the tenth century with that of the immigration that took place along the canal during the industrial era and continues today.
The guide will lead you in the footsteps of the Italian, Turkish, and Portuguese immigrants who mixed with other immigrants and built their "home," thus fashioning the warm and colourful present-day area.
You will learn more about architecture, which bears witness to the history of Molenbeek and certain great Belgians who were born there or lived there such as the painter Eugene Laermans, resistance fighter Gabrielle Petit, and Toots Thielemans.
Meeting point : Place Communale down the stairs of the City Hall of Molenbeek.
