The headline is meant to be tongue-in-cheek as obviously this is not the Notre Dame of Paris fame. It is, however, reasonably ornate and all of its stained glass is intact. If you are like me, and can't resist a church, this should be one for your list.

Take some minutes to visit the old church and admire its beautiful stained glass windows. The peace and quiet there will do you good, even if you are not religious.

It was a nice break to pop into this church on a rainy day. The stained glass windows were impressive and bright, and the atmosphere peaceful.

story of the statue of the Virgin and its "relocation" to Brussels was very interesting and definitely they play it up in the church

both inside and outside. Very peaceful and good place to rest your feet and relax. Free entry in to the church. The sculptures inside the church were grand. It is a small church so not much walking needed.

The exterior aspect is wonderful to view with its Gothic type architecture. Inside is equally impressive. On our day of visit preparations were underway for a celebratory ceremony; we surmised that it may be a wedding.

Under restauration in the inside right now, but still worth a visit, nice architecture and a bit of historical information at the entrance.
