This house was completed in 1697 in a more classical style than its surrounding houses. Nevertheless, it still carries echoes of the Italian-Flemish style. The gilded bronze bust is of Saint Aubert, the patron saint of bakers. The round panels on the first floor are decorated with effigies of the emperors Marc-Aurele, Neva Dece and Trajan. On the second floor, the facade is decorated with a bust of Charles II, King of Spain, flanked by cannon stocks and two prisoners.


The Roy d'Espagne is also a brewery. More info on www.roydespagne.be
