Again, a picture from my archive, Brussel 2012
Sint-Michiel en Sint-Goedele

The cathedral was built with Gobertan stone from the quarries of Dilbeek. The vault height of the ship is 26.5 meters.
During the last quarter of the 20th century, the most intensive restoration campaign of St. Michael's Cathedral took place. That the medieval building had several construction problems (including inefficient positioning of the air bows) had been known for some time. During previous restorations one never succeeded in solving these construction problems. In some cases, they were even aggravated. In the last restoration, however, it succeeded in stabilizing the structure for a long time. A whole range of secondary problems, such as water seepage, was also thoroughly addressed.
A meridian line has been incorporated into the floor.
