We need to talk about Leon

Leon Alfons Ernest De Witte was the son of Louis De Witte and Elisa Du Jardin. He was a lieutenant-general in World War I and responsible for the victory at the battle of Haelen in August 1914.

That heroic act immediately led to the immortalization in a street name. De Witte de Haelenstreet is located in the magical triangle of St. Catherine, the canal and the lovely Dansaertstraat, the beating heart of downtown Brussels, and houses one of the most beautiful bed and breakfast venues of the capital: Leon°16.
