The street, Marche au Charbon was built around the 13th century, and is home to the impressive Church Notre Dame du Bon Secours, a baroque-style building which was once a stopover for Saint Jacques de Compostelle. This explains why the street was originally home to many hostels.  

Located in the center of Brussels, and just a few steps away from the Grand Place, Rue Marche au Charbon has become the animated gay neighborhood of the Belgian and European capital. This paved and semi pedestrian street is decorated with frescoes of Belgian cartoon characters, which are popular and well known in Brussels. 

This street really is the heart of gay life in Brussels, and it is actually where the largest concentration of LGBT places can be found in the capital. Under the rainbow flags, it includes a large number of gay places, restaurants and gay bars brussels such as Le Boudoir du Garçon,  Plattesteen, Belgica, Tels Quels, Dolores, Homo Erectus Classicus but also the Maucho Sauna and other gay popular venues, specifically party goers for la Demence, the largest, monthly gay party of Brussels.
