Welcome to Vortal City Network
Museums and Monuments:
The suggestive look, which currently characterises the Belgian city, is prevalently the result of the enormous restoration work that the inhabitants of Brussels, that left no stone unturned, started after the destructive French bombing in 1695. Among the most prestigious religious buildings which deserve a particular mention, we find the Saint Michael and Saint Gudula Cathedral (the first one is the patron of the city), which shows Gothic and Renaissance signs, and the Gothic Notre-Dame du Sablon. In the historic centre there are also a lot of clear proofs of Art Nouveau-style, thanks to the work of the architect Victor Horta.
The numerous exhibition centres of the capital have a rich collection and are highly frequented by tourists from all over the world; those who stay in Brussels must necessarily find the time for visiting some of them. We recommend you to certainly visit the following museums :
