Before hundreds of people died in the September days of the Belgian Revolution in 1830, this place used to be known as Place de Saint Michel, where markets and fairs were held. 400 hundred of those martyrs lie buried in a crypt beneath your feet here, some of whom died right here. There are two monuments to the fallen at the opposite ends of the square, one to Frederic de Merode and the other named Jenneval. The buildings surrounding the square are neoclassical, and some house branches of the Flemish Government.
