The building itself is old. I went in and I found bunch of prices tied together and I asked what they were doing they said it fallen down. I started being aware of if it might fall on me. It's pretty nice building but the stories of it; can't be told to children.

Lovely beautiful church, lots of detail to see and pay attention too. Very friendly staff. We were here on a very hot day so being inside was a relief as well.

Beautiful church, our guide Patricia was very informative. Alabaster statues of the virtues, ornate boxes that hold remains of Saint Waudru. Must go. Free or small donation.

The exquisite beauty of the church itself, its paintings and statues is a must see in Mons. The Car d'Or (Golden Coach) is absolutely amazing, so many rich details. Church's wc could be in better conditions and explanations in English would be a plus.

This is the main church of Mons and houses many ornate and decorative nooks and crannies. It is also the location for music concerts and whilst we were visiting we listened to an organist and a singer practising (presumably) for a forthcoming concert. The acoustics were exceptional and we would have stayed longer if our timetable would have allowed it.

This church is worth a visit on a wet day, but I would recommend it to families with small children...too many things to fall over and break

Everything a medieval cathedral is suppose to be. It literally blows your mind awayyyyy. A must if in the area. I'm lucky enough to live a 2 minute walk from this magnificent cathedral.

A fantastic cathedral which stands out like a beacon in the otherwise quite ordinary town of Mons. Lovely carvings, beautiful stained glass windows and an extraordinary gilded coach!

A good short break from the crowds of Mons. The majority of displays have an english explanation so you'll be able to understand the description of it. Definitely check out the reliquaries and the wagon used to carry them during the Ducasse.

Saint Waudru still is popular in Mons. The church is a masterpiece of a very impressive regional Gothic style. Look for the golden shrine and the coach on which the shrine of Saint Waudru is placed when it leaves the church for a procession.
