    Description:

    The transept arms, built in about the mid-12th century, have apsidal ends, a feature borrowed in all probability from certain Rhenish churches.

    A UNESCO World Heritage Site granted because it is “distinguished by a Romanesque nave of extraordinary dimensions, a wealth of sculpture on its capitals and a transept topped by five towers, all precursors of the Gothic style.” In 1243 Bishop Gautier de Marvis undertook to rebuild the choir. When the new work was consecrated in 1255, it st…

When the new work was consecrated in 1255, it still lacked vaults and flying buttresses. This is in a Gothic (Rayonnant) style as is the rose window.

    Description:

    The cathedral was built in honor of Saint Rombout (Rumbold), a seventh century Irish missionary. Twenty-five paintings in the choir illustrate the life of the saint. The construction was started shortly after 1200, and during the final phase in 1452-1520, the tower was built. The spire was never completed; the flat-topped silhouette of the cathedral’s tower is easily recognizable and dominates the surroundings. The interior features a Baroque choir and a high altar by Lucas Faydherbe, as …

    Description:

    The city was founded by Baldwin I of Flanders around 870. Portions of St. Walburga’s relics were taken to Cologne, Antwerp and Furnes in 893, at which time the first chapel was begun. The present church was begun 1230-1238. Only the choir, two bays of the nave and the base of the tower were completed. The deep foundation of the tower was used subsequently as a water reservoir (cistern, known as the Citerne) for domestic and firefighting water; this is now part of a city park. Saint Walbur…

    Description:

    The tower was finished by Robert Chantrell in 1846 in a Romanesque Revival style. The royal commission for monuments (Koninklijke Commissie voor Monumenten), without authorization by Chantrell, placed a small peak on top of the tower, because the original design was deemed too flat.

    A 12th-century vaulted basilica with tall triforia. St. Salvator was restored in the 14th century after a fire, and its radiating chapels with Flamboyant tracery were added from 1482 by Jan van den Poele (fl 1478…

    Description:

    During the French Revolution the ancient cathedral of Liège (St. Lambert’s Cathedral), was destroyed systematically, from 1794 onwards. After the revolutionary fervor had evaporated a new cathedral was needed. The ancient collegiate church of St. Paul’s was thought suitable for the purpose and was elevated in rank, before 1812. This is the present Liège Cathedral. It was founded in the 10th century, reconstructed between the 13th and 15th centuries, and restored in the mid-19th centur…
