Set in the beautiful and historic Sablon district, this 15th century Catholic Church has a Brabantine Gothic exterior and a rich interior that includes two Baroque Chapels. The church is one of the best in its style. The church is especially noted for the contrast in its brightly colored stained glass windows in the four fold gallery make with the more demure grey white building. The sight is said to be especially striking at night. The best part is that it is usually quiet – not thronged much with tourists.
A curiosity in the church is the statue of Madonna that was once upon a time stolen from Brussels and taken to Antwerp but retuned in 1348. Apparently the theft was commissioned by a local Beatrijs Soetkens by the Virgin Mary in a dream; the statue was purported miraculous.
Features to note are the Pillars without capital, increasing verticality, the statues of the 12 apostles, the trforium and its motifs, a brilliant triptych by the Michel Coxie, the Baroque Pulpits and the reliquary of Saint Wivina. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Brussels itinerary 2 days.
