About St. Nicholas Church, Brussels
Originally built in the 11th century, this utterly cute church does not have much of it’s old look left. First its facade was given a Gothic facelift in the 14th century. In 1695 the French bombarded the church, and you can still see a cannonball buried inside one of the pillars. But the reason people feel like stepping in are all the little houses cuddled up next to the church as if it was their protector. Once you step inside, there are numerous items of interest, such as:
- A Rubens painting, Virgin and Sleeping Child
- 12th century icon of St Nicholas from Constantinople.
- The 15th century marble side altar dedicated to the Virgin.
- Relics of Catholic priests executed because they refused to convert to Protenstanism.
