Old Civil Registry

The Old Civil Registry is one of the oldest Renaissance buildings in Flanders. It is located on Burg Square in Bruges, between the Manor of the Franc of Bruges and the City Hall.

The Civil Registry building was completed in 1537 and housed the Civil Registrar, who was one of the most important city officials. The facade is made entirely from natural stone and is richly decorated with carvings. The bronze statues date from 1883 and are the work of the Bruges sculptor Hendrik Pickery.
