Description: of Narrow street Sint-Amands Bruges.

From Sint-Amands to Steenstraat. Name derived from the former Sint-Amandskapel until 1817 located on the corner with Sint-Amandsstraat. Cut through with hotel function and secondary trade activities; going back to 14th-century trading activities see so-called "Parysche Halle" (numbers 6-8) with frontage at Zilverstraat number 3A, demolished in 1965 and replaced since 1980 by new construction with hotel function to a design by architect L. Vermeersch (Bruges).
On the east side, the street is covered with braces that since 1928 have been supporting buildings on Steenstraat number 26 and number 28. Narrow, cobblestone side street with slightly curving line, narrowing to Steenstraat to alley. On the east side, side walls of buildings on Steenstraat.
Varied buildings whose oldest cores rise to the 16th century; anchored brick spout, point or frame and Flemish facades, but adapted in the 19th century with regard to windows (number 3). Number 1 consolidating "Artistic Restoration" in 1978-1981 after design by architect A. Dugardyn (Bruges); number 4 with preserved core see nut and children's beams, bluestone thresholds added in 1872 and changes to the ground floor in 1938 to a design by architect L. Dugardyn (Bruges).
