St Nicholas's Church, Brussels

Interesting
This church, which is surrounded by old houses, dates back to the 12C, but was almost entirely destroyed in the 17C. It is dedicated to the patron saint of boatmen. Its neo-Gothic façade only dates back to 1956. Inside, you will see that the choir is not in the axis of the nave. See the magnificent painting by Rubens, The Holy Virgin and the Sleeping Child.
