The Belgian city center is cited as a great example of a medieval historic settlement, even while it has evolved over the years.

This Medieval town thanks to Maximilian of Austria who made the town so poor it didnt have the money to tear down buildings and modernise which leaves us a fantastic place to walk around. You would think you were on a movie set.
