Carmelus Bruxellensis

The Carmelite monastery of Brussels existed from 1249 to 1796, near Manneken Pis. Philip the Fair held a chapter of the Order of the Golden Fleece in their monastery on May 13, 1500 (and January 22, 1501?).

The monastery was closed during the French Revolution and the buildings were demolished in 1797.
