St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral, Brussels, Belgium


What can you expect:

The Cathedral of St Michael and St Gudula (Cathédrale Saint-Michel et Sainte-Gudule) is one of the most important landmarks in Brussels. It was built in a Gothic style at the beginning of the thirteenth century on the foundations of a Romanesque church established in the eleventh century. The actual cathedral took 300 hundred years to complete. It is perfectly conserved because between 1983 and 1989 it was completely restored.
The church was given cathedral status in 1962 and has since been the co-cathedral of the Archdiocese of Mechelen-Brussels, together with St. Rumbold’s Cathedral in Mechelen.

The Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula is located on Place Sint Gudulaplein, east of Boulevard de Keizerinlaan. It is very close to the city centre and is open from early in the morning until late in the evening, making it very easy to visit.
