The Church of Our Lady

The Church of Our Lady is a Gothic church dating from the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The church houses a number of important works of art: paintings by Antony van Dyck, Gaspard de Crayer and others, a magnificent carved pulpit, a stylish marble high altar and some fine and extremely valuable murals.

The showpiece is an 11th century Romanesque font in Tournai stone.

The original Romanesque church was replaced by a gothic one in the shape of a Latin cross in the 13th century. During the following centuries, new elements were added to the building. A wooden spire, constructed in 1911, was blown down during a storm in 1940 and never replaced.
