St James Church of Tournai

This church illustrates the transition from the Romanesque to Gothic. Atop its porch is a thick, square tower with turrets. An arcaded gallery runs along the outside of the nave. Inside, this gallery forms a graceful traceried bridge over the transept crossing, and extends into the nave by a triforium.
