Was passing by and had some free time so called in. Beautiful old church that is used by regular worshippers. Please see my pictures. Free to enter. Please be mindful that this is a place of worship. Exterior is badly stained by acid rain.

The outside was renovated last year I think though the inside could also do with some attention. The nave is behind a glass screen and houses a 14th century madonna statuette though there is little else to make a journey here for.

This beautiful church, has a fairly new renovated facade, which has been taste fully done, admission is free and worth a visit. The surrounding area has a real buzz about it especially at night, when the square come alive with the many restaurants.

The "Église Sainte-Catherine" is a beautiful church in the centre of Brussels. It was built between 1854 and 1874 in a docks of the former port of Brussels. There is a nice square in front of it with plenty of dining options.

This church needs renovation. There is not much to see. It wouldn't visit it again even I do like to explore the Sacred Art.

Even though it's free, it's not worth going in. The interior is dull, plain and ugly. The outside, with its renovated facade and nicely lit at night, is nice.

This is an extremely calm and peaceful church. Very beautiful and moving in the midst of the bustling square.
