Quiet spot

Found this on a brief walk. Lovely find in the Spanish square with Bartok . Super quiet spot to simply ‘be’ in a busy Brussels.

Place D 'Espagne is a nice little secluded square just off the busy and bustling Rue Du Marche Aux Herbes and Agora square.
Although there is nothing really spectacular about the square there are a couple of great monuments here,one is of the composer Bartok and one to Don Quixote and his side kick,there both nice statues and make for some great photographic opportunities and only takes up a little bit of your time,it a square that is easy to locate facing Central Train station and is most definitely well worth checking out.

A square
Sep 2018 • Couples
Place d'Espagne is a public square surrounded by tall buildings, and mostly made of concrete or stones. Very little greenery around the square! There is a public car park underground, so this might explain a few things! The best thing about the square is the presence of two art pieces. One is the great equestrian sculpture (a replica) of that fearless warrior, Don Quixote and his faithful companion, Sancho Panza, and the other is the beautiful sculpture of the Hungarian musician Béla Bartók, who had lived in Brussels some time during his lifetime. The Don Quixote sculpture was a gift by the city of Madrid to Brussels.

Don Quichotte and Sancho pança Statue.
Dec 2018 • Friends
Free.
24/7

The main objective of executing this place was to remove the parking area close to grand place. Since 2006 the place took another name related to a character of the BD: place Marsupilami.
At the heart of the place stands a statue for Don Quichotte and Sancho pança (an identical replica of the one in Place d'Espagne at Madrid).

Nice little secluded square.

Place D'Espagne is a nice little secluded square just off the wonderful Agora Square.
It's a nice square that has some nice statues in including a wonderful statue of Don Quixote and also the composer Bartok.
In the square you have some great views looking over to the stunning architecture that surrounds this part of town.
Place D'Espagne is easy to locate ,it's facing the impressive Central Train Station.
Well worth checking out.

See the Don Quixote and Bela Bartok statues at Place d'Espagne
Dec 2017 • Couples
Place d'Espagne is a small public square next to the Horta Gallery and just off Rue du Marche aux Herbes. Not so much of a conventional attraction, the square seems to be a boundary area between the tourist sightseeing area and Residential area of Brussels.

There are two interesting monuments at the Place d'Espagne. These include the easily recognisable features Don Quixote and his companion Sancho Panza. There is also a statue of Hungarian Musician Bela Bartok, which is dark and simple. There is a Smurf statue just next to the square that is potentially having a look as well.

These are all worth spending a few minutes to view if you enjoy seeing monuments and statues during your travels.

This square is not Place d'Espagne ?
Nov 2017 • Friends
According to my Rough Guide this square is Place d'Espagne is a small square with a statue of Charles Buls, one time burgomaster of Brussels sat with his dog next to a small fountain. It is often the site for a small arts & craft market. The site of Quixote and Cervantes is a few minutes walks away next to Grand Place parking.

Just another statue in a small square
Nov 2017 • Business
If you are walking by definitely take a look. Great photo op with a steeple in the back ground but I would not go out of your way to see this. At night this seems like the place where people like to linger to party. I felt safe walking through this area at night so not to worry.

It's a square
Jun 2017 • Solo
As public squares go, the Place d'Espagne is neither large nor significant. It's close to Brussels Central, Grand Place and of course the tourist district. There's a few statues in the square, with pride of place going to Don Quixote and Sancho. A copy of the original in Madrid. Worthwhile coming to see for Cervantes fans.
