Another beautiful square

The church is gorgeous from the outside, there are plenty of seafood restaurants nearby (old fish market area), and a tower that was part of the old city wall is there as well.

OK, it is a tourist site, but there are reasonably priced restos a few metres outside. It was the old port of the City, but now is covered over and they still try to maintain the 'port' feel of the place. Like lobster? You will love this place. I have a friend who loves to go there regularly if not... More

This square is just amazing, and it is surprising that many people traveling to Bruxelles for work only know of the Grand Place, and not of Ste. Catherine. It is plenty of good (..expensive..) restaurant, but this is just the perfect place to have a good Belgian beer outdoor.

Another beautiful church in Brussels that deserves a visit in its own right. Easy to have a quiet moment here too and filled with more locals than tourists!

a great location where a lot of the locals still go. This large square is surrounded by a large array of restaurants, a cute church and a good place for a walk

A nice place to be on a sunny day, do take the opportunity for a standing aperitif around the fish stall, with some dry white wine. Stroll around, go to one of the fish restaurants, go to this wonderful bakery on the rue Ste Catherine, eat an ice cream, feel alive.

Great views of old and restored buildings and the church. Nice and good restaurants and small shops. Nice place to stroll and decide which shop or restaurant to stop next.

The church and the shallow oblong pool is surrounded by numerous, mainly seafood restaurants and fishmongers. Great to walk around, especially in the summertime and around Christmas.

Visited Brussels many times but really loved it in December! The Christmas market was really beautiful and magical especially the light show in St.Catherine's place. The church is the main focus of this square but also it has many nice restaurants in the area like I Latini, a very good Italian restaurant.
