Belfry

The Belfry is the proudest symbol of the city’s independence.
The Cloth Hall was built onto the side of the Belfry. In an euphoric Brabant Gothic style, this monument glorifies the industry. At the corner of the Cloth Hall is an old jailer’s lodge.

The façade is adorned with the ‘Mammelokker’ which depicts the legend of Cimon who was condemned to starve to death. He was saved by his daughter who fed him daily from her breast (‘mamme’: breast - ‘lokken’: suck). The Belfry is the middle of the famous three-tower row, together with the Saint Bavo’s Cathedral and the Saint Nicholas’ Church.
