Just off St Catherines. Very happy to see a great use of one of the numerous churches in Brussels. Displays and activities to help all of today's refugees. Moving, and the church is quite nice too.

A beautiful Flemish Baroque building from 1676. It is currently being used as a camp for refugees. There are many posters explaining the problems of slavery during this time.

They have erected a shanty residence in the church, and frown on visitors to the church, which they clearly now regard as THEIR territory. I cannot understand how the Belgian authorities allow this - it is clearly the 'thin end of... More

We stumbled across this church / beguinage on our first night in Brussels. We were stunned by it's beauty. We did not visit the interior of the church as it was very late. We enjoyed drinks at the La Guinguette en Ville which is directly across the street. We marveled at the structure, which we later found out was built... More
