The Comic Strip Route in Brussels

In Brussels there are a lot of interesting things, in addition to many others that are famous all over the world. When you think of something very famous in this city, it is likely that the first thing that comes to mind is chocolate, without a doubt delicious and that if you are there it is “mandatory” to taste it in different types.

As for the places to visit, there are many interesting things but today I would like to write about one that particularly catches my attention and I think that those of you on the other side will also do so. This is the "Comic Route" , a marvel that will take you to discover the best artists and characters of the city in this art. It is one of the most famous and recommended routes if you are going to be in Brussels, covering more and more places every year.

This route arose from the idea of ​​organizing tours of tourist streets and others that are not so, but always with something original as the protagonist: comics. Undoubtedly something logical since Belgium is the cradle of comics and from here are some of the most famous cartoonists and characters. In fact, the very famous Tintin came out of a Belgian newspaper back in 1929.

There are from statues and monuments to graffiti, murals and all kinds of supports to give a well-deserved tribute to all the cartoonists. The most interesting part of the route is between the Grand Place , the Saint Géry district and the area of ​​the Palace of Justice. There are many works that can be appreciated during the journey, such as the "Mural Hergé – Tintin in America", the "Mural Mitacq – La Patrouille des Castors" or the "Mural Verron & Yan – Odilon Verjus".

If you are lovers of comics, it will undoubtedly be a must on your visit to Brussels. And if you are not, surely after doing it you will begin to be. Highly recommended for any age.
