Why locals love it

The black tower or Tour Noir is situated close to Place St. Kathrine and the Katelijnskerk. It is a piece of the old middle age city wall. Nowadays it is surrounded by a hotel but nerveless it is more than 600 years old. If you want to see a piece of old Brussels without checking Grand Place you have to take a photo of this one.

Its just a walk-by but it is like much of Brussels, bizarrely nestled where it shouldn't be. But the best thing is, is right behind it is an amazingly located Brussels contemporary art gallery.
