Well, Ive noticed that the majority of my Belgian cards were dealing with Brussels, Brugge or Leuven....so i thought to interfere now with Mons (as you would call it in Belgium), or Bergen (as you would hear it by a Dutch)...rather awkward since i see no close relation to these two words.
Well it's a small city, and what you can see here is the Grand Place which is actually the centre of the historic town where is also town hall with the belfry in the background.
The City Hall, originally built near the current location of the belfry, was moved on the Grand Place in the 13th century. The flamboyant gothic building we see today dates from the 15th century. In front of it stands a statue of a monkey, which is said to bring good fortune to those who pat his head.
A million dollar question....can you see the monkey??? :)
and here comes the boring Belgian guy on a definitive stamp issued in 2009 in a set of 4.
