I was looking for a Catholic church near Grand Place. Want to say thanks for our safe travels. Inside is a quaint designed altar.

Its highlights at the moment are a nativity scene set in medieval Brussels though, of course, the gilded copper shrine to martyrs is super. The modern stained glass windows behind you after you enter are well worth a look too.

Very good looking Gothic church, with several side altars and a big beautiful main one. Good for a visit any time of day, light a candle, pray, or just take in the serenity of the place. Lovely.

This is an old church, but you wouldn't know it unless you went inside and did a bit of investigating. Amazingly, it dates back to the 12th century, but the exterior looks nothing like a 12th century one, because it isn't! The church has been...More

Though historically the church dates back to 12th century, in reality most of its exterior is rather modern, rebuilt in the 19th century. Though not as impressive as the Cathedral, St. Nicholas is worth to visit anyway, especially that it is very conveniently situated close...More
