The National Basilica of the Sacred Heart acts as a landmark - a beacon of light even - for all the inhabitants of Brussels, and it is surrounded by numerous districts. From chocolate aromas to Belle Époque scents, touches of Art Deco and modern colours, the streets around the Basilica paint a portrait of the capital in all its paradoxes. Chic yet popular, ambitious yet modest, pompous yet accessible, peaceful yet restless. Explore this almanac of Belgian stories.
