Location | Koekelberg, Brussels, Belgium

Among the 19 municipalities in Brussels, Koekelberg is the smallest municipality in terms of population. In the bottom of the picture we see Boulevard Leopold II which links Koekelberg Basilica (not in the picture) to the city centre. In 1958, a viaduct 10 meters high, was installed on top the boulevard. However this structure was dismantled after 30 years as the road planning, car park, lighting and street furniture became an more important factor. Koekelberg is famous for its Basilica which is one of the worlds biggest among Roman Catholic churches.
