    Description:

    Most of the sculpture comes from a loft in Renaissance style built between 1545 and 1549, and erected at the entrance to the choir. The structure of the rood screen was black marble and was decorated with bas-reliefs and statues in the round carved in alabaster by Du Broeucq. After the destruction of the rood screen in 1797 in the French Revolution, the vast majority of works of Du Broeucq were recovered and placed at different locations in the Collegiate Church.

    Work stopped in 1621, withou…

    Description:

    The Golden Coach is a horse-drawn processional coach of carved wood, painted and gilded. Built between 1779 and 1782 in Louis XVI style , it is the only processional coach of that time still in use. It is stored in the north transept and used in an annual procession of the reliquary of St. Waudru.

    Description:

    Work stopped in 1621, without the church ever being completed. At the keystone, it reaches 24.5 meters in height. The choir is surrounded by an ambulatory and 15 chapels. The construction of a tower 190 meters high was originally intended; it was begun in 1548, but the work ceased in 1691 at roof height. The church is known for is 16th century stained glass and interior sculpture by Jacques Du Broeucq. It also houses a Gothic Revival (1887) reliquary of St. Waudru, and a Louis XVI style proce…

    Description:

    View taken before damage in World War I (May, 1915).

    Although it was completely rebuilt in a unified style after World War I, St Martin remains a good example of 13th-century Gothic architecture in the Scheldt Valley. The plan of St Martin consists of a six-bay nave preceded by a projecting tower. The transept arms are unequal, the north with two aisleless bays while the south has three, with a western aisle. It houses the tombs of Jansenius, bishop of Ypres and father of the religious movem…

    Description:

    Dedicated to Albinus (Aubin) of Angers. The only cathedral in Belgium in the academic Late Baroque style, built to designs of the Ticinese architect Gaetano Matteo Pisoni. It was the only church built in the Low Countries as a cathedral after 1559, when most of the dioceses of the Netherlands were reorganized. The church has a Latin cross plan with apsidal-ended transepts and tribune, a high dome over the crossing and a convex projection to the façade; the interior, however, already displays …

    Description:

    From 1839 on the restorers, including Luis Raeymakers and Louis de Curte, who was responsible for the north transept porch (1881-1886), tried to return it to its original appearance. The statue of Saint Gudule (ca. 1900) is by Jan Delporte.

    This former collegiate church, dedicated to SS Michael and Gudule, became a parish church at the Revolution of 1830 and a cathedral in 1962. The present building was begun ca. 1226, but it was finished only towards the end of the 15th century and has been…

    Description:

    Laurent Delvaux (1696-1778) sculpted the monumental pulpit (1741-1745) from a design by Henricus-Franciscus Verbrugghen.

    The abbey of St Bavo was founded in the 7th century AD outside the walls, and it was destroyed in 1540 when Charles V built the new citadel (later destroyed). In 1539 the chapter had been moved to the parish church of St Jan, which was rededicated to St Bavo. A chapel dedicated to St Jan (St. John) is documented in the 10th century, and of its Romanesque successor (1038) p…

The present building was begun ca. 1226, but it was finished only towards the end of the 15th century and has been much altered; it is nevertheless a fine example of Gothic architecture in Brabant. The central vessel of the nave built by, among others, Jacob van Tienen, is fully characteristic of Brabantine Gothic, with huge columnar piers 1.47 m in diam…
