Linking rue Pierreuse to the top of the Montagne-de-Bueren staircase, this area has several viewpoints over the city and vast grassy terraces. You will see remains of the old monastery of the Minims brothers, the mediaeval tower of a Teutonic commandry, high walls of sandstone and rubble stonework, or the old beguinage along this itinerary overlooking the city’s rooftops.
