Egmont Palace

Local nameEgmont Palace
LocationBrussels, Belgium

The Egmont Palace is a large mansion at the Rue aux Laines and the Petit Sablon Square in Brussels, Belgium. Today it houses the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Egmont Palace is situated at an elevation of 69 meters.

It was built between 1548 and 1560 by Françoise of Luxembourg and her son, Lamoral, Count of Egmont, first in Flemish Gothic style, later Renaissance. The fabric was dramatically transformed in the 18th century, when the building was clothed in Neoclassical style, while the property passed onto the Arenberg family. The plans for this stage are attributed to the early advocate of neoclassicism, Giovanni Niccolò Servandoni.

After a fire demolished the oldest part of the building in 1891, it was reconstructed in a uniform neoclassical style.
