I enjoyed the interiors of the church. Those are fantastic. You enter and may see each detail of the sculpture.

Nice church in a lovely area, always beggars outside but no problem getting past them. The church is lovely inside, some impressive colourful stain glass windows and a very different pulpit. worth going inside if you are visiting the area, there is also a flea market outside on a Sunday.

Realy - church looks very nice and on the other side of the road there is a small parc, there you can sit a bit before/after visiting Palace de Justice, for example...

The most beautiful church in Belgium. Nice story of why the church was built (involves a statue of the Madonna brought from Holland). Very nice Gothic church with lovely artwork and some explanatory leaflets in multiple languages. Well worth the visit.

Beautiful structure and the carvings are really beautiful... The arcs have excellent stone masonary that make you stand up and appreciate the skills of the masons..

Wonderful chuch. Some amazing external stonework, particularly around the doors, plus you have to see the stunning stained glass inside. Make sure it's on your itinerary.

We didn't actually go inside the church, but it is in a very nice less touristy area, with nice restaurant/bars. Also has a good flea/antique market in the square in front of the hotel from 10am on Sunday mornings.

The church is pretty and out of the touristic track. In front of "Jardin du Petit Sablon", is a nice and quiet place for a prayer and relax off all day walk.
