The National Basilica of the Sacred Heart (French: Basilique Nationale du Sacré-Cœur, Dutch: Nationale Basiliek van het Heilig-Hart) is a Roman Catholic Minor Basilica and parish church in Brussels, Belgium. The church is dedicated to the Sacred Heart, inspired by the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur in Paris. Symbolically, King Leopold II laid the first stone of the basilica in 1905 during the celebrations of the 75th anniversary of Belgian independence. The construction was halted by the two World Wars and finished only in 1969. Belonging to the Metropolitan Archbishopric of Mechelen-Brussels, it is one of the ten largest Roman Catholic churches by area in the world.
The panorama view is just magnificent (perhaps the best of Brussels).
Beautiful modern church, has a nice view on the city of Brussels from its tower.
I have been living at 100m from the park of the Basilica. It has always been a special spot in Brussels for me, this place attracts lots of people with different backgrounds and stories. Every now and then there are some very interesting events happening there. It’s one of the places you need to visit on a nice summer day
Gigantic church adjacent to a large and beautiful park. The church may be large but is a little lacklustre on the inside it is worth it to go on the roof for 5 euros and take in the view.
This place gives you a very unique view of Brussels. The visiting of the actual church does not cost anything, but I would strongly encourage you to pay the couple of euros to get on the top of the National Basilica. The view from the top is just astonishing. Take the time, and visit this place. We spent about 2h, and I could honestly say that i felt a little rushed. I would visit again. The view was just worth it.
This massive church is one of the top ten largest Roman Catholic Churches in the world. Completed in 1970, it has more of a modern feel than a lot of cathedrals. If you like Churches then this is a must visit.
Really pretty and huge building. You have to pay to get to the higher points in the cathedral
Very interesting and inspiring building. Peaceful and charming. The view from the top of the Basilica is very beautiful.
This outstanding monument, built partly during the Art Deco period and the 6th largest church in the world, is a to-do visit in Brussels that many visitors unfortunately forget about. Fun fact: it took a whole weekend to inaugurate the nave as priests had to bless every part of it using holy water.
One of the most beautiful and historic church i visited wayback 1990.
Wonderful basilica in art déco, the biggest one in the world with this architectural style. Located in a nice area (Elizabeth Park), it is one of the nicest monuments of Brussels.
Really a huge church and nice architecture. Second level of the church is converted as exhibition place that is quite commercial. But overall a nice place to visit.
It’s breathtaking place! Elegant and holy thing just stand on the small hill! Love it and sit inside can feel warm and peace
I have been looking forward to see this church as I have been passing on this one whenever we visit Brussels. Did not have time to see what's inside. Had the chance to see it this year, 2018 and i love the interior. Simply amazing. There were some exhibitions inside as well. The view at the top is also a must for a fee. Worth the time coz you will see most of the prominent places in Brussels. Also nice to spend time to pray here as even if there were tourists, the church was relatively silent.
