Master architect Poelaert built this neo-Gothic church for Queen Louise-Marie, wife of King Leopold I. Now it is famous as the final resting place for many royal persons of Belgium: Leopold I of Belgium, Leopold II of Belgium, Albert I of Belgium, Elisabeth of Bavaria, Baudouin of Belgium, Queen Fabiola of Belgium, Prince Leopold, Prince Baudouin of Belgium, and Charlotte of Belgium. Poelaert himself is buried here, as are famous playwrights, singers and architects. People also visit just to photograph the stylish exterior facade. Though construction started in 1854, the church wasn’t completed till 1909. The style of architecture is Gothic Revival and the church is indeed an imposing landmark that should be visited, when in Brussels.
