Astounding Cathedral

If you can only see one cathedral in Brussels, this is the one you choose. Construction for the church began in the 13th century, while the facade that towers over the sweeping entryway lawn and steps was completed in the mid 15th century. Gilded statues of Saint Gudula and Saint Michael, the patron saints of Brussels, join several other pieces of artwork and religious artifacts, all bathed in the light of stained glass windows. The soaring spires of the church even play home to a family of falcons—a live camera monitors the nest. The cathedral is a testament to the human capability to produce beauty in art, and is the must-see church of Brussels.
