Struktur allgemein

existent [fertiggestellt]


  • The history of this church goes back to 1134, when a chapel was constructed by order of Godfried I with the Beard, Duke of Brabant.
  • The oldest Romanesque part of the chapel can be found back at the corner of the intersection between transept and choir at the side of the Kapellemarkt.
  • In 1250 the construction of the Romanesque-gothic choir started next to the chapel and was finished in 1275.
  • From 1421 to 1483, the nave was built in Brabant gothic and completed with 12 chapels.
  • In 1505 the construction of the gothic tower in Gobertange stone started.
  • From 1866 to 1871, the church was completely renovated by Jamaer, city architect of Brussels.
  • In 1708 architect Pastorana added a bell tower in blue stone to the main tower.
  • The merciful statue of Our Lady of this church dates back from the 17th century, originates from Becerra (Spain) and was introduced by Archduchess Isabella. The statue inspired several well known writers like Charles Baudelaire and Michel de Ghelderode.
  • In 1654, the Our Lady’s Chapel, at the left side of the choir, was added.
  • The church is located just outside the first wall of Brussels, which can be seen in its close distance to the Hoektoren / Tour d'Angle.
  • Just like many other buildings in Brussels, this church was heavily damaged by the French rampage of 1695. The main tower was damaged, while the tower at the transept was destroyed and never rebuilt.
