O L Vrouwebasiliek

Recommended
This fine Gothic building (13C-16C) is preceded by an impressive unfinished towered façade. The nave rests on cylindrical columns with crocket capitals. The elegant triforium is ringed by a gallery. Note the 16C Antwerp wooden altarpiece relating the Life of the Virgin Mary. The treasury displays marvellous items and the cloister is adorned with interesting capitals.
