Located at the Vrijdagmarkt, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is the actual home of printers Christophe Plantin and his son Jan Moretus, as well as their printing establishment. Founded by Plantin in the 16th century, Plantin Press was the most prolific printing and publishing house in all of Europe. In addition to some seriously old (possibly oldest) printing presses, their collection also includes an extensive library.
