The stench from the canals would lead you there. Not any longer. Getting rid of the smell from the city’s numerous polluted waterways is part of an overall plan to make this town a habi table environ for 20th Century citizens without spoiling its historical charm, much of which dates back to the Gothic period. Andries Yan Den 2\beele, alderman of Bruges, decided nine years ago the time had come to stop bulldozers pushing down the gaily painted two and three story step-gabled houses, ripping up the cobbled streets and clearing away Medieval fortresses and churches. He and about a dozen other Bruggelingens with money to spend got together and formed the Marcus Geeraerds Foundation, named after a 16th Century painter. The foundation started out as a pressure group to restore property and the ancient character of the city and to set an example to other Belgians to save their towns, too. It was not long before the foundation began achieving its aims here. Since 1972 the city council has been giving $25,000 (U.S.) annually toward restoration work and many private individuals are repairing their own property. So far. the foundation has restored 25 buildings. It is trying to get as many as 2,000 of Bruges’ 8.000 dwellings on the list of buildings which contribute to the city’s atmosphere and style. According to Abede, these houses include original examples of purest Gothic, renaissance and richest baroque styles, or homes which although not first class monuments are implacable because of materials used in their construction or their place in a harmonious street picture.
