Eglise Royale Sainte-Marie, or in English St. Mary’s Church is located in the municipality of Schaarbeek. Built in 1845 it is somewhat of an oddity since it’s the only Romanesque-Byzantine style church in Brussels. The architect Louis Van Overstraeten who designed it found inspiration from the Basilica di San Vitale in Ravenna, Italy.
