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