world's largest churches, after the Basilica of Notre-Dame de la Paix in
Yamoussokro on the Ivory Coast,
St Peter's in Rome, St Paul's
in London and Santa Maria Dei Fiori in Florence.
Today, the church is in the first place a place
of prayer for peace. The church is still used for celebrations of the parish or
for big national celebrations. But the basilica is more than that. The basilica
has also an important cultural function. Its a magnificent Art Deco monument,

a wonderful view over Brussels!
