That's a huge cathedra! Worth the visit not only for the amazing architecture, the gorgeous statues, the giant organ and vitrals, but for the view to the old town as well. (It really looks like the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, but with much less visitors)

This church goes beyond religion. It's a piece of art. I don't recommend buying in the souvenir shop though, very expensive.

The Cathedral is situated in the Centre of Brussels and has some of the most impressive stained glass windows we have ever seen. The pulpit is unique with steps at either side to enter and there are large statues on every pillar. Very much worth a visit.

Gothic cathedral built in 13th century, with its all typical parts.As a fan of gothic architecture, I never miss the opportunity to see another piece, one more, one more. This one stands on the hill and has great view from the entrance. Its grandeur is amazing, be sure to climb up here. Both exterior and interior have great decoration, so... More
