This is the church to see. I have never seen such lovely stained glass windows. The richness was spectacular. Lucky enough to hear a singer practising. It was amazing

This smaller church sits at the end of the Place du Sablan (Café Leffe is at the other end). This is a nice area about a 10 mins walk from the Grand Place. The food and drink are abit cheaper in this area - as it's more frequented by locals. It's definitely worth the short walk to get away from... More

This is a typical northern european cathedral. It looks similar to the notre dame de paris but its not that crowded as the one in Paris.

A really beautiful, Gothic style church with wonderful stained glasses. It's on a square with all those amazing &expensive Belgian chocolate shops such as Godiva, Neuhaus, Leonidas etc.

The stained glass windows are a sight to behold. I think more information about the history of the cathedral would have made our visit more enjoyable.

Beautiful and welcoming church to visit and walk around in. Take time to sit quiet and reflect. Beautiful outside facade too.

The lighting, architecture of the building, and general ambience have been well preserved for the period. I was visiting with a friend from Lille, France in July 2005.
