Named after Thérèse Tournay-Solvay, daughter of Alfred Solvay and widow of Émile Tournay, this park, located in Watermael-Boitsfort, is one of the most beautiful in Brussels. There are a variety of spaces and slopes, two ponds in its valley, a natural forest on its slopes and an English garden at the top.
As for heritage, discover the ruins of Solvay castle, which was destroyed in a fire in 1982 and has now been overrun by vegetation. Built in the Flemish neo-Renaissance style, it was the property of Alfred Solvay, brother of the famous industrialist Ernest Solvay, and his family. The castle's stables are now occupied by a centre for environmental and ecological education. Admire the rose garden designed by Jules Buyssens and the sculptures, including the replica of the Olmec Head no 8, a work by Ignacio Pérez Solorzano which was discovered in the Mexican village of San Lorenzo.
