Montagne aux Herbes Potagères, Rue/Warmoes-Bergstraat
   This street runs 230 m (754 ft.) but was much shorter in the Middle Ages when it stopped at the Warmoes gate of the first town wall. The street and the gate took their name from the vegetable growers from Schaerbeek and Evere who brought their produce into the city through the gate. The portal was demolished in 1568 and the street lengthened and paved up to rue du Marais.
