With regard to the surface, the Basilica of Koekelberg is the fifth largest church in the world, after the Basilica of Our Lady of Peace of Yamoussoukro in Ivory Coast, the Saint-Peter’s Basilica in Rome, the Saint-Paul’s Cathedral of London and the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower in Florence. Today, the church is first of all a place to pray for peace. The Basilica is still used for parochial services and for large national services. But the church is more than that: it is a beautiful art deco monument: there are two museums which organise different exhibitions twice a year, and you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of Brussels.
