Because I live in Ixelles, I don’t go often to Anderlecht. For many people, it’s too far, too crowded, nothing to see, not hype, not green, etc…
Of course, this is not true and Anderlecht has much more to offer than a famous soccer club or a big university’s hospital!
One day, I was there, walking on the street. My phone rings, and I started a long conversation, and didn’t focus on where I was going. So here I am, walking and talking at the same time, from one street to another in this unknown neighbourhood.
Then, without really realizing, I passed what looked to me like a house from the middle ages, not to say a farm. Still talking on the phone, I entered and discovered a peaceful and magical garden.
It was not long before I decided to stop the conversation in order to make the most of this quiet and unexpected moment….
If you are looking for a quiet and easy-to-reach garden (5 minutes walk from the metro station St Guidon) where you can sometimes have the illusion that you’re alone in the city, pay a visit to this place: you will surely find some sort of serenity….
