I Could Look It Up…

…but I am not going to. It is Sunday, and I thought a photo essay would be appropriate today. And given that it is Sunday it seemed appropriate to make the post photos from a  church I have visited.

Problem is, I don’t know what church is in these pictures.

In 2009, to celebrate out 25th wedding anniversary, my wife and I spent a month in Europe. At one point I took a three-day side trip to Brussels to allow her some extra time with her family in Germany without the need to have everything translated for me. One of these days I ‘ll get around to learning some German, but it won’t be today.

I spent a morning just wandering around downtown Brussels and taking pictures. But I wasn’t thinking about posterity, and rarely noted the names of exactly what was in the photos. I know approximately where this church is, not far from the royal palace. I’m sure I could find it again. And with that knowledge of its general area I suppose I could look it up on a map and then find photos online to confirm that I had the right place. But that seems too much like work.

So enjoy the pictures, and if you have been to Brussels and recognize the place you can identify it in the comments section.

    I only remember a couple of things in Brussels, including a a landmark small bronze sculpture whose name in part means “little man”. The cathedral is:

    “The beautiful Gothic Cathedral of St Michael and St Gudula (Cathédrale des Sts-Michel-et-Gudule) is situated at Treurenberg hill, which lies between the lower and the upper town. The Cathedral is the national church of Belgium and it is here that royal weddings and funerals take place. Though dating from the 12th century, the church was only granted cathedral status in 1962.”

    1. Thank you for doing the research! I speak for everyone I think in saying it is much appreciated.
