Points of interest
1 Petit Pois
Start on the Grand-Place facing the Hôtel de Ville. Head right towards the Rue de Nimy which you will see in front of you.
At the start of the Rue de Nimy, on your left at number 7 is the Royal Conservatory of Mons. This university of the arts of the French Community of Belgium trains artists, performers and designers in two fields: music, and theatre and the spoken word.
On your right, at number 12, is Plaza Art. This is a local cinema showing subsidised films to a wide audience. Mainly recent European productions in their original versions with subtitles. Every year, Plaza Art shows around thirty premieres and some sixty national releases.
Continue for a few metres and you will see on your right the Church of Sainte Elisabeth. This was the last parish created in Mons in the 16th century from the original parish of Saint Germain. The church built in Hainaut gothic style was consecrated in 1588. The nave and choir of the present church, rebuilt following the fire of 1714, are the work of a Mons architect, Claude de Bettignies. The bell tower above it was built in 1719/1720.
The Courts of Justice are at number 35 Rue de Nimy. Opposite is the public prosecutor’s office, the façade of which comprises in part a former abbey sanctuary dating from the 18th century and in part an example of modern architecture.

Continue then to number 42 and the “Petit pois” boutique where you will find a wide selection of nursery items, for infants from 0 to 4 years of age. You will also find collections of original clothing, decorative items, toys and accessories, as well as a designers’ corner, a childbirth wellness area (antenatal and postnatal yoga) and a natural range (washable nappies, natural products, etc.). Baby carrier workshops are also held to teach good technique.
Retrace your steps along the Rue de Nimy towards the new courthouse on your left and when you reach the Church of Sainte Elisabeth take the Rue des Fossés on your left. Go down the Rue de la Peine Perdue to the Rue d’Havré.
