This church is to be found at the Treurenberg hill on the edge between lower and upper town. Already at the beginning of the 11th century a church was situated here. In 1047 the Duke of Brabant, Lambert II, had the relics of Saint Gudula transferred from the Saint Gorik church in downtown Brussels to the new church at the Treurenberg hill. From that moment on the Saint Gudula and Saint Michael church took the lead over all the other churches in Brussels. Lambert II also gave the church a chapter of 12 canons (priests who took care of the services and possessions of the church). You never know when this might come up in a quiz.

More importrantly, this heralds a new era for this site as it will now contain photographs shot on film as well as digital. For my birthday I got a Holga. If you don\’t know what a Holga is, well Google it. It is bad… wicked even.

To be honest, all I recall about seeing it was how tired and thirsty I was.

This is just one of the many bull-related murals all over the town. The one on the police station is particularly good with a Sherlock Holmes bull
