“Suprising Gem close to Lille”

Notre Dame Cathedral in Tournai
Ranked #3 of 44 things to do in Tournai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We took the train from Lille Flanders at €8 each to Tournai and were pleased with this little town with a splendid centre featuring plenty of bars and restaurants serving at prices half that of neighbouring Lille. Well worth a visit.

this is an extraordinary building with it's five towers, dominating the view of the city centre together with the Bellfroy.
Pity that the inside was not visitable because of restauration activities.
Therefore I only rate it as AVERAGE (for the time being).

Worth the trip if your in Tournai. Lots of work being done inside the Cathedral. I found the tombs and digging area interesting.

A great place, but half of it cannot be seen as it is under refurbishment after a tornado in 1999 (I am not kidding!). Will be stunning when finished. What is very good is the treasury (2 Euros) where there are gold and silver artefacts and reliquries, saints relics and many artworks, particularly the gold chest used in the grand procession.

A lot of plaques to help you understand the history of the site. The church isn't worth a trip from a long distance, but Tournai is lovely, and you can spend most of a day here happily.
