The historical church was built in IX century but overall construction of the monumental building was finished in XVI century. It is dedicated to the patron of Brussels St. Michael.

Being Catholic I love all the old cathedrals. Very holy and beautiful. You can pay a few Euro to see the foundation of the gothic church below this one from around 1047 (I can't remember exactly). Amazing to walk through.

I particularly love the open space surrounding this marvelous structure. It is a sudden surprise amongst the modern city buildings. Do visit the place if you are in and around Gare Centrale area.

Interesting smaller cathedral, but still beautiful. The "piece de resistance" is the carved pulpit, dating back to 1699. Quite uniques and worth a visit on it's own.

This place is beautiful. The stain glass Windows are a sight to behold. You have to be quiet especially when there is a service but everyone is respectful. No charge to get in simply a beautiful serene place to visit.

One of the most beautiful cathedrals I’ve visited in Europe. Built in the 9th century and not completed until 15th century. Stained glass in there is absolutely stunning.

St. Macheal’s, a Gothic style Cathedral in the colonial part of Brussels should be on any visitor’s “must visit” list. Construction began in 1326, and today’s cathedral is a mix of early and late Gothic style with some side chapels more reflective of Renaissance and...More

This cathedral is very big, very historical and very beautiful. It was started in 9th Century and completed in 15th century. But it is still stunning. The works on the wall, the statues and the stained glass windows are awesome. The ambiance inside is also...More

this is one of the most beautiful cathedrals you will find anywhere. It is very similar to Notre Dame in Paris, but seems cleaner, better maintained, and with much smaller crowds. Definitely worth a 30 to 45 minute visit if you are in Brussels.

Some people say that when something changed so much that it is almost not it anymore. Out guide said this about the Saint Michel and Saint Gudula Cathedral in other words, it is not gothic architecture. Nevertheless it it very beautiful.
