Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Brussels

27 Feb

Hop on to the Atomium Line of the Hop On Hop Off service to find your way to the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. The Bascilica is situated atop the Koekelberg Hill, and is a unique Art Deco church that stands as the fifth largest Church in the world!

The Basilica offers great views of the city if you gain access to the dome (which Piggletino suggests you do!). The Church holds various exhibitions and many sculptures that you can take your time to look at. Interestingly, the Basilica differs from the typical Gothic style churches and features numerous modern stained-glass windows, that gives the interior a warm feeling despite the use of concrete and terracota.
