The Church of St Egidius intra muros

Location: Heldenplein

The Church of St Egidius intra muros is known locally as ‘Sint-Gillis-Binnen’. The name harks back to the Middle Ages: it meant that the church stood inside the town wall. All that remain of the medieval church are the tower and the old choir. In the eighteenth century it was outgrown by its congregation so a new nave with three aisles was built. The Neo-Baroque façade dates from the early twentieth century.

This church is a true gem with its bright interior, colourful stained glass windows and magnificent decorations. You will find it on Heldenplein, where a war memorial commemorates Dendermonde’s devastating losses.
