Remigio Cantagallina - Guidebook

A Florentine artist in Brussels in the early 17th century

There are works in the iconography of a city that stand out due to their originality and major documentary value, and this certainly applies to the drawings of Remigio Cantagallina. This brochure invites you to discover Brussels and the surrounding region in the early 17th century through the travel journal of the Florentine artist. It starts with a tour through the Pentagon, from the Halle Gate to the former Schaerbeek Gate (Botanique), travelling mainly through the upper town, across  neighbourhoods where emblematic buildings such as Coudenberg Palace and the Collegiate Church of Saint Michael and Saint Gudula were concentrated, as well as a significant number of aristocratic townhouses, including Hôtel de Bournonville and Hôtel d’Hoogstraeten. The guidebook then suggests a number of excursions outside the city centre, following in
Cantagallina’s footsteps towards Saint-Gilles, Anderlecht, Forest and Etterbeek.
