Belfry (Binche Belfry) and Town Hall, Binche

The belfry is located in Binche's town hall, which dates back to the 14th century. Burnt down by the French in 1554, the hall was soon restored in a Renaissance style by architect Du Broeucq. In the 18th century, the architect Dewelz covered the building with a neoclassical fa├žade but, after major restoration works in 1901, the town hall regained its Renaissance appearance. A Baroque onion dome crowns the belfry. The belfry houses the carillon, which includes several 16th-century bells. The coats of arms of Charles V and his sister Mary of Hungary adorn the building.

A UNESCO "World Heritage of Humanity" site.
