The Black Tower (Dutch: Zwarte Toren, French: Tour Noire) is a medieval tower in Brussels, Belgium. It's one of the best conserved remains of the first fortifications of Brussels, built at the start of the 13th century. It is located behind the Sainte-Catherine Church in the Rue de la Vierge Noire (Zwarte Maagd Straat in Dutch). The Black Tower is notable for being one single medieval tower surrounded by modern-day buildings. This odd sight has made it a popular tourist destination.
