Chapelle de la Madeleine/Magdalena Kapel
   Located on rue de la Montagne, the Chapelle de la Madeleine was built in the 15th century on the site of an earlier chapel. The façade of 1453 is preserved and the small church was rebuilt in the Gothic style two years after the bombardment of 1695 and restored from 1954 to 1958. It was the favorite chapel of several Brussels guilds.
   The Chapelle de Sainte-Anne (Anna Kapel) was built in the Flemish baroque style. Only the façade remains, built on to the sacristy on the north side of the Chapelle de la Madeleine. The remainder of the church was demolished in 1957 to clear space for construction of the Gare Centrale.
