During the middle of the sixteenth century, Antwerp's old Gothic city hall, built in 1406, had become too small for the rapidly expanding city, at the time known simply as 'the Metropolis'. The city council decided to build a new city hall just north of the existing one. Having just become the world's most powerful commercial center - eclipsing cities such as Bruges, Genoa and even Venice - the new building was to become a symbol of the city's wealth and power.

The Cathedral of Our Lady (Dutch: Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal) is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Antwerp, Belgium. Today's see of the Diocese of Antwerp started in 1352 and, although the first stage of construction was ended in 1521, has never been 'completed'. In Gothic style, its architects were Jan and Pieter Appelmans. It contains a number of significant works by the Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens, as well as paintings by artists such as Otto van Veen, Jacob de Backer and Marten de Vos.

The belfry of the cathedral is included in the Belfries of Belgium and France entry in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

St Michael's Bridge is a stone arch bridge in the center of the Belgian city of Ghent. The bridge crosses the River Lys, on the south side of the Graslei and the Korenlei. The current monumental bridge was built in the period 1905-1909, after the establishment of the station building. Both St Michael's Bridge and the Old Post Office are creations of architect Louis Cloquet. Previously, there was a flat swing. The bridge is part of the street St. Michael Helling. From the bridge has been northward view of the Graslei and Korenlei, and in the distance the Counts. Eastbound bridge gives the typical view of the three towers of Ghent: St. Nicholas Church, the Belfry of Ghent and Saint Bavo Cathedral. On the southwest side is St Michael's Church. The bridge was protected in 1983 as a monument.
