Montgomery – Square Montgomery



We can see the statue of Field Marshal Montgomery (1887-1976), commander of the 21st division of the army in Western Europe during the second World War. In 1951 he became the deputy of the commander of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation’s European forces. The bronze statue was sculpted by the artist Oscar N

emon and was inaugurated in 1980. The fountain, located at the centre of the square, was a project initiated by the Ministry of the Brussels-Capital Region.


The fountain is lighted by a system consisting of a light generator, a network of optical fibers and lenses.

The school for higher education ICHEC can be found near the roundabout. This mansion, designed by the architect G. Dhayer, dates from 1906 and was the old residence of Baron Coppens.
