This imposing building resembles the Opéra Garnier in Paris. La Bourse (Stock Exchange) was designed by Léon Suys from 1868 to 1873. The inspiration is Classical but the simplicity of its design is dominated by abundant decoration. Auguste Rodin and other artists contributed sculptures to this building, which holds some interest. You can see the foundations of the former Franciscan monastery, the Couvent des Récollets (1238), with its bay window on the left.
