In the former Charleroi library, situated in the emblematic place Carolo, the ‘Manufacture Urbaine’ has now been installed. This very modern concept in the heart of the city produces beer, bread and roasted coffee in traditional style, using local products. The objective is to promote this know-how and raise awareness of the importance of ethical and quality consumption.
The Street Art Trail
Since 2014, Charleroi is the epicentre of urban art in Belgium with the creation of its biennial “Asphalte”. It already has around ten monumental frescos and is enriched every two years by new urban works. You’ll be able to discover them by following the tour itineraries on foot or by bike.
Le Musée de la Photographie
Charleroi’s Museum of Photography is the most considerable in Europe. Housed in a former Carmelite convent, the museum boasts a collection of 80,000 photographs and organises temporary exhibitions regularly. Which gives you the opportunity to come back here and see something new each visit!
Within its edifice of glass and iron built for the industrial exhibition of 1911, the Art Museum of the Province of Hainaut is a place of exhibitions which privileges, among other things, art forms centred on current social affairs.
