Visit these timeless places in Brussels

The Erasmus House and the Beguinage are two of the oldest municipal museums in Belgium. With the collegiate church of Saint Peter and Saint Guidon, they form an exceptional historical complex. This ensemble reflects the glorious past of the commune of Anderlecht which experienced considerable development from the Middle Ages, due in part to the cult of Saint Guidon, the patron saint of cattle.

Options for schools

The Erasmus House and Beguinage Museums provide an opportunity to approach history via current concerns such as censorship, freedom of expression, the place of women in society, the coexistence of religions and the question of European and national identity.
