The building itself is a large gothic church with a high clerestory. It's a little dirty and would benefit from interior cleaning. The outstanding feature is the stained glass windows, especially behind the high altar, which are tall and brightly coloured. I doubt that many of them are very old, as the colours look too vivid, but the overall impression... More

If you are int he city center of Brussels you should visit the church, It is lovely and has beautiful architecture. The neighborhood around the church has some lovely shops and there is a small garden next to the church which is a nice place to take a break and rest.

There is a park near the church, which is a very place to relax. The church is really beautiful in its architecture. A nice place to visit.

While this was not a specific destination for us, we ended up spending more time in the church than in our original destination. We walked around the outside and as much of the inside we could. There was a service at the time we were inside. The windows were beautiful, and there was something to see on every surface.

The carvings, statues and stain glass in this church are breathtaking. You cannot walk by this church and not take time to go inside and look at everything.

This church is in a nice section of town too so worth checking out all the shops. In the church I had never before seen chairs that you can sit in and then turn them around to kneel on...learn something new everyday!

We were passing and walked into here. Beautiful, with lots of history. It is very tranquil inside, and the stained glass windows, the statues and carvings are quite something..
