Since the second half of the twentieth century, Brussels has been one of the areas with the highest concentration of foreign-born residents in Belgium. Following Italians, Spaniards and Greeks, Moroccans began to arrive in the early 1960s. This guided tour shows where their migrant journeys ended and shows the historical importance of places of exchange and socialisation in one of the most iconic districts of the Moroccan presence in Brussels: Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, a district with a rich industrial history.
