Gothic church near the Rue Haute and the Marolles district. The church was filled completely with Polish Roman Catholics, attending a mass in their language. Very peaceful after they had left. A monument remembers Pieter Brueghel the Elder who was buried in this church in...More

This is a Roman Catholic church built in 1134 but the present structure dates from the 13th century. Part of the structure was damaged by the French (as many other buildings) during the bombardment of Brussels in 1695. It was restored in 1866 and again...More

Didnt go looking for this church. However i just stumbled into this beautiful building. Wow it is quite a work of art and it free to go inside. The builders of this building and others in Brussels are truly exceptional. Go and enjoy.

Built from 1200-1400 this church is transitional. The transept and choir are Romanesque with Gothic elements and the remainder is Flamboyant Gothic. Some of the vaulting is quite stunning. Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1529-1569) is buried here and his funeral plaque is still in place.

Small and cozy church. Well known for its paintings and interior. From the exterior, you would not expect something as nice as it is.

It is a beautiful church. It has exceptional architecture. I was impressed by its size and tranquility that dominates. Outstanding were huge columns of the church, dressed in natural flowers. There are many impressive cathedrals in Brussels, but do not miss this one.
