Beautiful church

Although it is not as grand as norte dam in Paris it is full of art and history. It is beautiful and there were less then 10 people there, it felt like I was home.

An amazing cathedral. It is really interesting, it has beautiful towers that reminded me of Notre Dame de Paris. Interior is also very nice with its nicely painted windows. Definitely a must see in Brussels.

We just happened upon this cathedral on a walk around. It is free to go inside. When inside it costs €1 to go under ground where you can view the romanesque foundations of the church.

St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral is a beautiful cathedral in the historical center of Brussels. The architecture is similar to Duomo in Milan.
