While in Brussels #2

My second week in Brussels was amazing. I discovered a lot of beautiful places, I tasted more chocolate, I was happy. I think this was the best week of the year. I also visited other 2 gorgeous cities: Bruges and Antwerp, but I will make a post for each city because I have a lot to say about it and I took some great pictures.ย 

I think that these places are not so well-know like the ones I visited in my first week ( Atomium, Grand Place, St. Michel and St. Gudula Cathedral, Basilica of Sacred Heart) but definitely they are worth a visit.

1.The Garden of Sculptures

Here are some remarkable trees (linden trees, locust trees, maples, etc) but also a garden of sculptures with woman as theme.

2. Place Poelaert

Great place to spend a few minutes, to relax and enjoy the view. You will be surprised with the panoramic view that is on offer.

4. The church of our Lady of Laeken

The church was built around 1275 in early brabantical gothic style. Later, a German architect designed the facade and the tower ( 99 metres). However, the work was never completed and the church is still the same as it was a hundred years ago. Although never classified the population considers it as a historical monument as it is the necropolis of the royal family and the church where Cardinal Cardijin is buried.

5. Parksย 

There are so many beautiful parks in this city ( Parc Royal, Tenbosch Park, Cinquantenaire, Parc Leopold).ย So many places you can relax on the grass, on a bench, or just walking and admiring the beauty.
