About

This imposing church was built on the foundations of the previous Romanesque abbey church. If it reminds you of Rome, it is no coincidence: the architect Pieter Huyssens was inspired by the great Italian Renaissance churches. The interior is impressive and the art treasures are unique. Not to be missed.
