Belgium is known for its comics or cartoons, which are an integral part of Belgian culture. Comics are strongly rooted in reality and in people’s imagination. Some of the most well known characters are Tintin and the cowboy Lucky Luke.
On buildings around Brussels, artists have painted large murals depicting many of the favorite comic characters. There are over 50 of these murals that have been cataloged. It’s a little bit of a scavenger hunt to find them. Sadly, in some cases, “street artists” have felt the need to add their own stupid graffiti, but most of them are unaltered.
