Averbode Abbey Church

Interesting
This fine abbey church built from 1664 to 1672 resembles those in Grimbergen and Ninove. Its undulating façade displays the statues of St Norbert on the right and St John the Baptist, patron of the abbey, on the left. The interior has majestic proportions. The chancel is longer than the nave and separated from it by two altarpieces that once formed the rood screen. Note the richly carved 17C stalls beyond them.
