Waterloo is part of the Brabantian dialect area, and has many buildings in the local Brabantine Gothic architectural style. It was also a strategic position between Brussels and Namur (Namen). The town's most famous landmark is the Hôtel de Ville, designed by Louis XV architect François Blondel. The Battle of Waterloo took place near Waterloo on Sunday 18 June 1815: Napoleon Bonaparte had just been defeated at Ligny on Saturday afternoon by an Anglo-Allied army under Wellington when he heard that Blücher's Prussian army was approaching from Wavre to his rear; so he decided to retreat towards France rather than face them directly with his exhausted French troops.
