We stayed at Motel One and got the privilege of walking past the cathedral daily. It is beautiful outside and inside. I personally prefer to see it lit up at night.

It is 10 minutes walk from the Grand Place. Lots of photos will be taken, for such a peaceful place. If you are to visit one Church in Brussels, This is The One.

A nice cathedral to visit. The wooden pulpit was an outstanding feature for me. Remember to walk round the outside of the building as well as the interior.

This is one of the more beautiful and popular churches in Brussels that I have seen. The architecture and interior are equally impressive.

Went there thinking it would just be another cathedral, but was really quite something. The statue of disciples leaning over Jesus' body was especially moving.

Big, beautiful and holy. Great place to visit. Good place to pray. This place is located a bit off centre but it certainly worth a visit.
