Like the Palate of the Three Powers of Brüsel taking the place to the Law courts of Bruxelles, the gallery known as "the Passage" also constitutes a district of Brüsel, but this "urban fracture" is found in our world strangely excentric of 130 kilometers, in Spa and is named in this place "the Léopold II Gallery". The close thermal baths built by the architect Suys in 1866, under the impulse of Auguste Spanach and ordered at the same time as the stock exchange do not leave any doubt that we are really in Brüsel.

Plane view by Nadar of the district of the "Passage" in Brüsel.
