Located in the heart of Europe's capital, Sint-Gillis / Saint-Gilles is often called "a village in the city" but next to that, it's a village full of surprises! Did you know that the city hall counts 38 sculptures on its facade? This reflects the architectural diversity you can discover in this municapilty. Through its local approach and cultural policy, Sint-Gillis / Saint-Gilles was and still is the home of many musicians, painters, poets or dancers. That's why the French and Dutch cultural services join forces to participate in this special Balcony Edition.
