This building called "The Five Continents" dates back to 1901. It was built in the Art Nouveau style by Frans Smet-Verhas, commissioned by a shipowner, hence the inclusion of a wooden ship's bow. The loggia above it is decorated with stained-glass windows bearing the names of the different continents.
