Brussels, Belgium

Namur Gate

The Namur Gate (French: Porte de Namur, Dutch: Naamsepoort) was one of the gates of the second walls of Brussels. In the 21st century, Namur Gate denotes the Ixelles neighbourhood where the gate formerly stood, rather than the former gate itself. This site is served by Porte de Namur/Naamsepoort metro station on lines 2 and 6 of the Brussels metro.

The city gate was originally known as New Gate of Coudenberg (Dutch: Nieuwe Coudenbergse Poort), to distinguish it from the old gate located in the first walls, and it used to connect Rue Entre deux Portes/Twee Poortenstraat (current Rue de Namur/Naamsestraat) to Chemin d'Ixelles/Elsenseweg (current Chaussée d'Ixelles/Elsensesteenweg).
