Belfries of Antwerp

In Antwerp, the second most populous city in Belgium famous for its diamond trading industry, there are two belfries on the list of World Heritage Sites: the Cathedral of Our Lady and the Antwerp City Hall. Actually, they are two of the totally fifty six historical buildings in Belgium and France which are designated together as a group under “Belfries of Belgium and France”. 

The two postcards were sent by Axel of France when he was visiting Antwerp, magnificent architecture! Nice special chocolate stamps were used, thank you so much Axel. ;-) The stamps smell nice just as those from real chocolate, I have one sheet for collection (many thanks to Anne of Luxembourg!).
