“Beautiful Cathedral”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Fabulous sculptures of St Gudule and St Michael. There was a chapel here as early as the 9th century dedicated to St Michael, replaced in the 11th century by a Romanesque church and then in the 13th century this present Gothic style church was commenced taking 300 years to complete.

“Splendid Cathedral”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Apart from religious angle, the cathedral is worth seeing from architectural point of view of alone. It is a grand structure. The church here started sometimes in mid 11th century and it was converted or rather renovated into Gothic style in 13th century. The many stained glass windows inside the cathedral are very beautiful and worth going miles to see. The broad sweeping stairs in front going up to the cathedral add to the grandeur.
