Collegiate Church of St Waltrude

Recommended
The work of Mathieu de Layens, this impressive building typifies Brabant Gothic. Inside note the Car d'Or (1779-81), a carriage in carved, gilded and painted wood which carries the reliquary of St Waltrude (patron saint of the town) through the streets every year on Trinity Sunday. The chancel has seven allegorical alabaster statues by Du Broeucq. Admire the 16C-17C stained glass, and the Flamboyant Gothic Les Féeries Notre-Dame altarpiece (first chapel on the right of the ambulatory). Fine treasury.
