The Grote Markt makes for a splendid vision in the middle of the city and evokes instant awe with its varied sights, smells, and sounds. Dominated by the renaissance style Stadhuis (city hall), the square is lined with numerous guildhalls, high patrician houses with step gables and gold-plated ornaments and statuettes. The famous tavern Den Engel is located here, and it is also home to several traditional cafes and shops. One of the square's most enchanting landmarks is the Brabo fountain, which is steeped in mythical history. It features the late 19th Century statue of the legendary Roman Silvius Brabo, a braveheart, who according to Danish folklore, saved Antwerp from Druon the giant.
