The Ancien Greffe Civil-Oude Griffie, the old Court office, is located to the left of the town hall. The building was built in 1534-1537 under the direction of Chretien Sixdeniers, under the project Jean Wallo. Our gaze appeared a magnificent white and gold façade in the style of the Flemish Renaissance. Above the pediment are gilded sculptures of Moses, Aaron and the Statue of Justice, as up to the 80s of the XIX century in this building was located court.
Next to the Stadhuis building is a smaller Renaissance building, the Old Civil Registry (1537). This was once the Court for 200 years. Though smaller than his neighbor, he contrasts it for beauty, color and style, if not size. Before it was called the Palace of Freedom and it was governed until 1795. At the top of the building there is a bronze statue of Justice with her eyes tied, while on her right and left the statues of Moses and Aaron. Now is the Tourist Information Office.
Very interesting experience. Lots to see Lots to learn.
