Between 1894 and 1898 Victo Horta built the most prestigious Art nouveau mansion in Brussels for Armand Solvay, son of the famous industrialist Ernest Solvay. 

This emblematic building by Art nouveau master Victor Horta has kept all its original elements : furniture, lighting, curtains and works of art from the time of its construction. 

In this guided tour you will discover the technical innovations implemented by Victor Horta, both for the buidling structure and the interior of the mansion. 

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, it is a unique setting where the notion of  "total art" finds its most complete accomplishment.
