Through this article we list the buildings and monuments from where you can take one of the best photographs of Brussels.

It is the fifth largest Basilica in the world. It was built by Leopold II. It is not only one of the largest Catholic churches in the world, but also the largest Art Decó building.

The Atomium of Brussels

This is one of those monuments that do not need presentation. Anyone who hears speaking about Brussels will most likely think of the Grand Place, beer, French fries and, of course, the Atomium.
