Beautiful Church

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.

At place Sainte Catherine, there are pretty good restaurants, and it's where the Christmas Market and the ferris wheel are. It's a nice area

We visited the square in December/January - while the Christmas market was in full swing. The square was filled with lots of colourful stalls selling food, drinks, trinkets and gifts. It was so festive! The food was delicious, as was the mulled wine and hot chocolate I tried. There was also a (very unusual!) carousel and a big wheel. We... More

There is no separate listing for the church on trip advisor so I will describe the church of St Catherine first. There is a tower from the original church which is all that is left of the 15th century structure. The present church looks medieval but is a large Gothic Revival style church of the mid 19th century which incorporates... More
