l'Église Notre-Dame de Laeken/Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk van Laken was built following the death of queen Louise-Marie in 1850 as a memorial for the widow of Leoplold I.It also became the principal burial site for the Belgian RF.
Construction started in 1854 and went on until 1872 under the direction of Joseph Poelaert.
Work continued after that and a central tower was added in the early 20th century as well as other additions.
