Located on the opposite side of the parliament building, the National Palace , this magnificent building is home to the Kings of Belgium and symbolizes the flourishing Belgium monarchy. This Royal Palace is comprised of four buildings erected during the 18th Century to host King Guillaume I from the Netherlands. The building was particularly embellished and restored under Leopold II's reign (1835-1909). Now, Queen Paola takes the lead to further valorize it. The works of art adorning the palace include seven pieces by photographer Dirk Braekman, paintings by Marthe Very and the wonderful ceiling of the Mirror Room decorated by Jan Fabre with more than a million jewel beetle carapaces.
