This typical example of high Gothic architecture was originally designed to be a full-fledged cathedral, but never made it much beyond the transept. That's why, at the western end of the building, the brick wall contrasts heavily with the traditional sandstone of all other parts. Many interesting sculptures and paintings to visit, of which the P. P. Rubens "St. Rochus and the Plague patients" is the top.

The interior is filled with beautiful wooden rococo furniture, a genuine Rubens, a sacrament tower by Duquesnoy, sculptor of Manneken Pis and much more.

In Brussels they have only one little statue made by Duquesnoy. Here you will find several, and of better quality. Come and find them. The altarpiece from Rubens also has a great history.
