The elegant triforium is ringed by a gallery. Of particular interest is the 16C Antwerp wooden altarpiece relating the Life of the Virgin Mary. The treasury boasts some superb objects and the cloister is adorned with interesting capitals. A museum exhibits artefacts found on the site which has a history dating back two thousand years.
