Underneath the ground you can find the remains of the old palace of the Burgundian dukes and emperor Charles V. This was one of the most beautifull palaces of it's time but unfortunately it burned to the ground in the 18th century. Instead of rebuilding it about 7 meters of earth were added to create space for two new classicist squares. These remains where rediscovered and now you can visit a museum where you can see the chapel, the magna aula and walk across a street that's been covered for almost 300 years to what's left of a neighbouring mansion from the same period.
Here we have the royal palace again, it was build pretty much right on top of the old imperial palace.
