    At the request of King Leopold II, Henri Maquet designed the Venetian Gallery in 1900. The adjoining royal gallery is approximately 400 meters long and was used to protect against the sun, wind and rain on the way from the royal villa to the Wellington racecourse.

    When the royal family decided to stop using their seaside location, the city of Ostend received the entire complex under license, with the requirement that it be used for cultural purposes. The Venetian galleries were renovated between 1998 and 1999 and now serve as an exhibition space. Together with the Royal Galleries, they are one of the most popular photo opportunities on the Belgian coast.

    The Venetian galleries were built between 1900 and 1903 according to a design by the architect Henri Maquet (1839-1909). Like many new buildings of the time, this gallery was built at the request of King Leopold II. Previously, the site was taken by a restaurant and adjacent oyster well called "Pavillon du Rhin" (Wikipedia).
