In February my wife and I took a day trip from paris to Brussels on the coldest,rainiest,windiest day imaginable.(two umbrellas bit the dust and we got soaking wet) but I'm still glad we went. After spending a good part of the day in a Brussels history museum at the Grand Place and in a really good restaurant. The rain and wind slowed so we ventured out again and here are some of the churches we saw. The top one is The St. Michael and Gudula Cathedral, the middle is the Church of Saint-Nicolas and the bottom one is Notre Dame aux Riches Claires a "17th century church built in the Flemish Renaissance style is the work of Luc Fayd'herbe and is typical of the Brabant Baroque style."
