The name means "Big Place". It is, in my opinion, the prettiest plaza in Europe. Surrounded by thousands of tourists, twinkies, touts, and even a few locals. This was built in an age when each guild and business had to outdo its neighbour. Donald Trump would understand.
On the left is the town hall. A wedding was being done there while we watched....complete with costumed town crier, bridesmaids in pretty dresses, and handsome Belgiques looking not at all uncomfortable in their best penquin suits.
Note that this is only half the plaza.
