2004 Ypres Square

The square is the center of the city. In 1187 the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwgasthuis was established on the east side. In the 13th century, the cloth hall with belfry was built on the northwest side. The aldermen of the Ypres kassel line used to rent a medieval stone on the north side, which they bought in 1503. From 1456 to 1792 there was also a scandal on the market. Under French rule, a marble fountain was erected in the east in 1689, but this disappeared in 1806. Until the 18th century, several houses still had a wooden façade. At the end of the Ancien Régime, the old kassel row building was used as a court in the first half of the 19th century.
Ypres was destroyed in the First World War and most of the buildings around the Grote Markt were destroyed. After the war, the city was rebuilt from the 1920s and the Grote Markt was restored in a historicizing reconstruction architecture. The Court of Justice was erected on the site of the former Onze-Lieve-Vrouwgasthuis on the east side of the market

I hope that you enjoy it
