Mons Town Hall

Mons Town Hall
© F. Daniel - Jemappes

The oldest part of the Town Hall, located at the heart of the city, was constructed between 1458 and 1477. Although primarily built during the second half of the 15th c., it retains a rather accentuated Gothic style strongly resembling the Collegiate Church of Saint Waudru. Of particular interest are the reception Chambers, built between the 16th and 18th-19th c. The Mayor's Chamber contains a collection of masterpieces of Mons silversmiths, as well as tapestries dating from the 17th c. These tapestries were actually a gift to the town from Louis XIV, the King of France, after the siege of 1691. The Mayor's garden, located behind the main building, is a picturesque and beautiful spot containing, most notably, the "Ropieur" fountain, a bronze work representing a young lad from the town.
