Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula

Place Sainte-Gudule, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium

The Roman-Catholic Cathedral of St Michael and St Gudula is located between the Upper and Lower town on the Treurenberg hill. It dates back to the beginning of 11 century when was here built a Romanesque church but the cathedral status was granted in 1962. In 1047, the Duke of Brabant, Lambert II let relocate to the church the relics of St. Gudula. She, together with Archangel Michael, became patrons of the church and the city itself. In the 13th century, Henry I, Duke of Brabant commissioned the renovation of the church. Work began in 1225 and over a period of 300 years the building was enlarged and transformed into the Gothic church we see today – it is one of finest examples of Brabant Gothic architecture.
