Who is Saint Michael, the archangel? Who is Saint Gudule? Why are they the patron saints of Brussels? Why and how did a modest chapel become a powerful church of princes?
How did the Habsburg dynasty demonstrate its power?
The surrounding area and cathedral bear witness not only to Brussels' ancient history, but also to modern times, such as the North-South junction, the Ravenstein gallery, the Bozar foundation, the Coudenberg hill, the ULB (Université Libre de Bruxelles), the new BNP headquarters, and more.
We hope you join us!
