Rue du Bois Sauvage
Ilôt Sacré


St Michel and Gudule Cathedral is located in the very heart of Brussels on Treurenberg Hill between the Lower and Upper Towns, and it is dedicated to Brussels’ male and female patron saints.

Construction of this twin-towered cathedral began in 1226 and took around 300 years to complete which explains its Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance styles.

Today, the church is used for official Catholic ceremonies, royal weddings and state funerals, and you can visit the building and see the intricately designed stained-glass windows of the cathedral, the Cathedral Treasure, the Romanesque remains and the Romanesque crypt.
