Davinci code BRUSSELS

'Welcome to Brussels, capital of alchemists and freemasons. Welcome to my city, where the stones speak...'

Alchemists of ancient times sought the Philosopher's Stone, which was to allow them to transform base metals into precious metals, and through which they would also find "the liquid gold", the aqua vita, the Elixir of Eternal Life...

Freemasonry: A haze of secrecy hangs over Freemasonry. The private nature of the lodges and centuries-old initiation traditions contribute greatly to this.

Waranda Park: "What is the connection between Waranda Park and Freemasonry?"

Coudenberg Palace: An underground exploration of Charles V's palace. Now an enchanting archaeological site, it is a network of vaulted corridors, halls and hidden rooms,

The Brussels Palace of Justice: During this visit, you will discover the story of the architect, and the symbolism hidden behind this monumental facade.

The monumental cemetery of Laeken is considered Belgium's Père-Lachaise. Numerous celebrities are buried here.
The royal crypt where our kings and some family members found their final resting place.

Surnateum - Museum of the supernatural.
The Surnateum is a cabinet of curiosities dedicated mainly to the magic that has haunted our civilisations since the dawn of mankind. The museum's curator, Christian Chelman, devotes himself entirely to the study of magic in all its forms. (vampirism, spiritualism, witchcraft, paranormal, mediums, etc). 

Dieweg cemetery - Uccle
The cemetery is eerily beautiful and overgrown. The graves and mausoleums were abandoned and overgrown by nature in 1958.
