We visited Saint John the Baptist Church because it was very close to our hotel accommodations. The church originally served the beguines – an order of ladies that were committed to the Catholic church doctrine without the sacred vows. When we were there, there was...More

Eglise Saint-Jean-Baptiste au Beguinage is another church! It is a beautiful building and it is an exceptional site, if you have not seen anything like it before! If you have seen other similar churches, and in our case we have seen far too many, then...More

This is a nice 17th century church next to the Place de St. Catherine in Brussels. If you are visiting St. Catherine then look in to this church as well.

This church is right by St. Catherine's Square and is worth going to look at as it is another interesting church in the city.

The architecture is very, very baroque; which is a rare thing in Brussels. While I was walking around (I didn't go in for a look) there was a lively market going on in the plaza. From other comments I now see that the redundant church...More

This is a Roman Catholic church build by Flemish architect Lucas Faydherbe in 1676. It is a small walk from the St. Catherine Place.

I was shocked! This should be a sacred place but become a gallery, meeting rooms, coffee shop (closed one), concert music hall. It is just waste of your time. Avoid it at all cost unless you have nothing to do in Brussels!

Centrally located, beautiful architecture. A short visit to the church can be planned if you are anywhere near to the place. It has nothing extraordinary to offer though.

One of my favourite churches in the city. It's not the most famous and not all of the tourists find it out. Try to be one of those lucky ones!

The church is just a few meters walk away from St Catherine cathedral and and popular square. It is interesting to visit, with a nice architecture, is absolutely worth a short visit if in the area.
