Conveniently located at Rue au Beurre, Brussels and is easily reached by Metro at station Bourse Beurs. This Catholic church dates back 1,000 years old and showed some remains of the original structure. Its 11th-century Romanesque lines are hidden by a 14th-century Gothic facade and the repairs made after the French bombardment of 1695. A cannonball fired by the French in 1695 is still lodged in one of the pillars.
The church has a small painting of "The Virgin and Child " by Rubens and is open to the public for visit and veneration.
We went there on Sun 30 Dec at 10 am and was pleasntly surprised that there was an English mass said by an English speaking franciscan priest. It was the best x'mas experience for us as we were there on Friday nite to take in the sights of the Christmas market & Lights at the Grand Place and not aware of the mass times.
For a quiet place to reflect, this would be an ideal church as it is centrally located and easy to find.
