Église Notre-Dame

The 13C-14C church was thought to be too big after the town's population had declined in the 17C, so the nave was demolished (except for a Tournai-style gallery with triplet windows). Note the apse's lancet windows between the flat chevets of both side chapels. The interior has a series of late-13C wooden statues of the Apostles and a Miraculous Christ statue (carried in the Bruges Holy Blood procession) on a north-wall Baroque altarpiece.
