In light of the horrific events this week that hit Brussels I went back to look at our photos taken in 1992!! Remember these are pre-digital!!!
We only spent three days wandering around but what stands out in my mind was the Grand'Palace where the flowers markets are held.
A chapel dedicated to St. Michael was probably built on the Treurenberg hill as early as the 9th century. In the 11th century it was replaced by a Romanesque church. In 1047, Lambert II, Count of Leuven founded a chapter in this church and organized the transportation of the relics of the martyr St. Gudula, housed before then in Saint Gaugericus Church on Saint-Géry Island. The patron saints of the church, St. Michael and St. Gudula, are also the patron saints of the city of Brussels.
