Another project of King Leopold II. Reputedly larger than the St. Peter's Basilica in Rome and the largest structure of the 19th century. Impressive building but an uninteresting eclectic style. Good views over Brussels from the square in front.

This was the highlight of our weekend in Brussels. The building is awe inspiring. The atmosphere inside is like something out of a movie scene. Get here early and enjoy a wander around the beautiful neighbourhood afterwards.
