Description

On the main square in Braine-le-Château, the stocks are a symbol of infamy, a mechanism of high justice that were used to publicly shame a criminal. This is one of the rare examples to still have its lantern structure. It is made from blue stone and has a lantern structure that can hold a standing man. It has been restored and has been the symbolic monument of the village since 1521. It is unique in Europe.

See the stocks on the small walking tour of Braine-le-Château.
