About Eglise Saint Jacques Sur Coudenberg, Brussels
On July 21, 1831, Leopold I took the oath of allegiance to the Belgian Constitution, and became King of Belgium. He took that oath in this grand neoclassical church built in the 18th century. The facade however is almost entirely Greco-Roman, with its huge triangular pediment and great Corinthian columns. Moses and King David’s statues guard the entrance. The interior is relatively stark, and only the dome is decorated with floral motifs. You’ll find two paintings by Jean-François Portaels, The Crucifixion and The Cross, at the ends of the transept.

Eglise Saint Jacques Sur Coudenberg, Brussels Reviews - Write a Review
This church is tall, peaceful and quiet. It is close to Brussels park. Don't miss it. It looks like you can not come in but is is open. Come and cool down before heading to the palace or the park. Enjoy!
A very beautiful church. With a fabulous outside! Worth a visit!
At first glance, it looks like a palace, a city hall, an opera house, but it's a church, of neoclassical style. It has a soft and balanced light, and the building is very well preserved.
Very spacious and clean looking cathedral with nice music for the atmosphere. And it's free of charge! (Donations are welcome)
I never felt so peaceful as when I stood in this church. It is beautiful and it looked so clean, and serene, the priest played an opera song which went great with the elegance inside. I hope to go back someday.
