I was shocked! This should be a sacred place but become a gallery, meeting rooms, coffee shop (closed one), concert music hall. It is just waste of your time. Avoid it at all cost unless you have nothing to do in Brussels!

Centrally located, beautiful architecture. A short visit to the church can be planned if you are anywhere near to the place. It has nothing extraordinary to offer though.

One of my favourite churches in the city. It's not the most famous and not all of the tourists find it out. Try to be one of those lucky ones!

The church is just a few meters walk away from St Catherine cathedral and and popular square. It is interesting to visit, with a nice architecture, is absolutely worth a short visit if in the area.

Just off St Catherines. Very happy to see a great use of one of the numerous churches in Brussels. Displays and activities to help all of today's refugees. Moving, and the church is quite nice too.

A beautiful Flemish Baroque building from 1676. It is currently being used as a camp for refugees. There are many posters explaining the problems of slavery during this time.
