    No testimony of passage comes to support the assumption of one place at the subway station "Gate of Hal" in Bruxelles. However, much of indices leave think that there would be indeed one at this place.

   To start with the name, the word itself of gate only suffices to evoke the idea of Passage. Then, how not to imagine that the long dark and ignored corridors subway could not dissimulate a hidden Passage. The long tortuous under-grounds are at the base of many search in the field (like the citadel of Namur) and the subway station of Bruxelles would not be a single example (see the subway station "Arts and Trades" in Paris).

   However, other indices still lead to this assumption of Passage: the abandoned construction of another station in the Louise Place, near to the gate of Hal, and the mysterious events which would have occurred there, the mysterious trams 81 which come out of the walls and which authorities tried to dissimulate (or rather to adapt) behind a decoration which does not delude nobody.

   The subway station "Gate of Hal" however did not reveal all its secrecies yet!
