"The church of Belgian royalties" Cathédrale of St. Michael and St. Gudula Tip by Pavlik_NL
Cathédrale of St. Michael and St. Gudula, Brussels: 78 reviews and 170 photos
Saint Michiel & Goedele cathedral is the main church of Brussels, but also the church where the Belgian royalties are baptised, married, crowned and burried. This church is magnificent and has - not unlike many things - quite some similarities with the Notre Dame in Paris (besides Gothic architecture). Brussels often has looked to Paris for examples, though in spirit it used to be a true Lowlands-town. Now-a-days the French, or should I say Wallonians, are taking over the town, strengthened by the Euro-parlementarians. Hopefully the tide will turn and Brussels will find it's own identity back. An identity that can be tasted on the Grand Place.
