So similar to the one in Paris. It is just opposite to a park, so you can have a good feeling in a summer day

We walked up here and accidently viewed an amazing historic celebration of the history of the area. There were dozens of people in period outfits, music, and a parade, which made this plaza wonderful. We couldn't go into the church though because of the events.

One of great baroque architectures in Brussels and you should visit the inside to enjoy its music during prayer

You don’t waste any time enjoying it. If you like baroque period, this is quite must-see place. Simple, yet elegant. Very peaceful place to be in the middle of busy chaotic Brussels. Don’t waste any time trying to compare it to the one in Paris. Just don't. It's a nonsense exercise. Each one has it's virtues.

It's a beautiful church, but it doesn't have the charming of the one in Paris, it's more a church in a neighborhood.

This is a very beautiful Cathedral. It is worth a stop to enjoy the architecture inside and out. I loved how detailed it was.

The stained glass and carved woodwork are especially beautiful. Highly recommend visiting.Even better, it doesn't take much time, and is in close proximity to other attractions.
