Walking tours around Brussels includes Pla Ste. Catherine. It's one of many places of gathering for locals during weekends or holidays.

Beautiful square near the Dansart street. Lots of nice restaurants, bars and cafés. Have a beer @ Monk, try some oysters and white wine @ Noordzee and choose one of the restaurants to end your evening in style. PErsonally I love Fourneaux.

This square doesn't have any charm to it but the church at the end is quite exquisite. This area has some wonderful authentic belgian restaurants.

Just got here before a downpour. The church is one of the better ones in Brussels it has more character than the others which makes it that little more impressive. plus the cafes and shops near by are really nice to check out

The fish market is there and this automatically generates quite a bit of smell. Otherwise it is a beautiful place, offering a somewhat medieval feeling with its narrow streets.
