Eglise St. Nicolas
Sint Nikolaaskerk

Roman Catholic

Brussels

Belgium

The Saint Nicholas Church is one of the oldest in Brussels. Parts of the church date to the 12th century. However, it was plundered during the troubles between Catholics and Protestants in the 16th century and then completely burned in 1695 during bombing by the French. The high tower collapsed in 1714, killing a man and a pig. The church was fully restored in 1954. It was again closed for renovations in the early 21st century.
