Gulden Rabat, Mechelen

The classic French style dominated the 18th-century architecture in Mechelen. On the occasion of the thousand year anniversary of the death of Saint Rumbold the town was beautified, and regency motifs started to appear on the Baroque façades. One of the examples is the house named "Gulden Rabat".

The Gulden Rabat is a warehouse with a façade at the Vismarkt in Mechelen. A façade stone at the top dates the building in 1724. The sandstone façade is ordered by pilasters with Regency motifs.
