"Proof of this Flemish city's prosperous cloth industry in the Medieval era."

Since Ypres used to be an international center for cloth trading, this building housed all the activities as a main market and warehouse during the Medieval era. Although Cloth Hall was destroyed during wartimes, it was re-built as if nothing happened and still looks glorious. Although there isn't much to do there, it is still a magnificent building, a reminder of the town's prosperity and wealth.
