Saint-Gilles is a district made of typical Horta houses, the architecture that characterizes Brussels the best. The Barrière neighbourhood is a very friendly, popularand multicultural spot in the city. It is perfect for students & workers with an active daily life. You'll be able to study in coffee shops, work out, and explore great breweries all in the same street. Saint-Gilles is also the best place to practice your French language since it is highly-populated by Parisians.
