"Visit the Church of Saint Catherine" Eglise de Saint Catherine Tip by DanielF
Eglise de Saint Catherine, Brussels: 13 reviews and 36 photos
Brussels has venerated Saint Catherine of Alexandria for many centuries. This saint was tortured to death by the Roman Emperor for her refusal to abjure Christianism and become his mistress. According to the legend, when she was beheaded, milk came out from her body instead of blood and her remains were transported to Mount Sinai by the angels, where she is still buried.
The church that stands today on what used to be one of the basins of the port of Brussels is, however, not that all. The Medieval church located in the vicinity was torn down in the XIX century and a new church was erected by Josef Poelaert.
