This is a nice small church, close the Grand Place. Always nice to get a relaxing atmosphere, close the more busy center.

The Saint Nicolas church is a nice church to visit one hundred meters away from the Grand-Place, Brussels' main attraction. There are many beautiful statues.

This small church is almost 1,000 years old, but little 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...More

St. Nicolas is a nice, quite small church, not far away from the Grand Place, about 5 minutes to walk. It is a Catholic church in late Gothic style.
