This great brick vessel stands on a shaded square. Its construction lasted several centuries. The tower was first, then the church in the Gothic style. Unfortunately, several fires damaged the building, and it was only completed in the 16C, with the addition of the chapels and choir. The tower was finished in the 19C in the Romanesque style. 99 metres high, this typical "mast" is one of the symbols of Bruges. The inside of this vast cathedral is finely decorated.
