The Cathedral of Saint Michel is the most important religious building in the center of Brussels.

This Cathedral lies on top of a hill and was build between the 13th and the 16th century. Because of this long building period all styles of "Brabantse" Gothic are present in the architecture. Many architects have contributed to the different parts of the Cathedral. The colorful windows and many of the art on the gravestones hold great cultural-historical value.

At the end of the 20th century reconstruction works were started to fix constructional errors made hundreds of years earlier. Now the building is optimized four tourist visiting and viewing.

Some of the highlights are the marble baroque altar, the stained glass frames (as mentioned earlier), the church treasure (containing priceless pieces of silver) and the seven confessionals dating from the 17th century.
