St.Michael and St.Gudula Cathedral
It’s the royals’favored coronation,marriage,and state funeral spot,a seasonal go-to for Christmas carol concerts,and“the purest flowering of the Gothic style”according to Victor Hugo.The monumental St.Michael and St.Gudula Cathedral atop Treurenberg Hill may have taken 300 years to complete,but her singular beauty now reigns supreme over Brussels’skyline.
If there’s one legendary bar you frequent while in Brussels,let it be L’Archiduc.Sitting in the authentic wooden booths with a strong cocktail in hand,listening to the mellow tunes escaping the jazz piano on its prominent spot in the room,it’s easy to see why Miles Davis would pop in for a jam session at this soulful Art Deco establishment.Ring the bell to be let through the gorgeous cast-iron door.
