Carolus Festival > September

1000 Bruxelles

Carolus V Festival brings with it a series of events showcasing Europe's Renaissance heritage and history. The festival highlights the important role Brussels played in this history. The name Carolus V refers to Charles the Fifth, the most powerful sovereign of the 16th century, whose main place of residence was Brussels. This city, where he received his first legacies in 1515, has since become the capital for over 500 million Europeans.
