Old Continental Hotel BRUSSELS-CITY in BRUSSELS / BELGIUM description:

The facade of this building is decorated with imposant middle resaults, that are accentuated on both sides with a double pilar. The triangular fronton that crowns the middle resault, is supported by two pairs of caryatids. The vertical charachter of this construction is broken with pronounced horizontal mouldings between the first and the second floor and above the third floor. The corniche carries an open worked breastwork.

It is a pity of the modern publicity that diminishes the impressive fronton .

The Hotel Continental was located here at the origin, there was then a more or less piramidal roof that was crowned with a statue. In 1901 the building burnt down and the roof was rebuilt without a top-point (with our thanks to Yannick Du Bois).
