Located on the site of the Recollets Franciscan convent, founded in 1238 but dissolved during the religious wars of the 16th century. Severely damaged during the bombardment of 1695, the convent disappeared at the end of the 18th century. The excavations that uncovered these vestiges began in 1988 and have culminated in the opening of this archaeological site with numerous tombs, including the tomb of Jean I, Duke of Brabant, who died in 1294.
