    Description:

    The building lost somewhat of its typical neoclassical temple-like appearance by the addition in the 19th-century of a bell tower (after the design of Tilman-François Suys) and a colored fresco by Jean Portaels on the pediment.

    The building was designed and built to be included in the neoclassical style of the Place Royale. Construction of the facade was started by architect Gilles-Barnabé Guimard after the designs of Jean-Benoît-Vincent Barré (1775). The nave, transept, choir and and sacris…

    Description:

    On 16 September 1844, the project was awarded to a young architect from Ghent, Louis van Overstraeten, based on his designs in a competition begun in 1843. Van Overstraeten died from cholera in 1849 and was succeeded by Louis Hansotte. In 1853 the unfinished church was consecrated. Fund raising and building continued into 1880. The final cost is estimated as 2,547,888 Francs. Giacomo Puccini’s funeral was held in the church in 1924.

    Description:

    The Church of St. Madeleine was built between 1850 and 1853, designed by Pierre Buyck, a local architect. In 1842 Buyck went back into government service as provincial architect for the district of Bruges; he built numerous churches, presbyteries, town halls, schools and hospitals in the north of West Flanders. His role in the rise of the archaeological Gothic Revival style, of which Bruges became the centre, is especially interesting. As early as 1844 he collaborated with R. D. Chantrell (17…

    Description:

    There was an earlier St. Catherine’s, but the present building is 19th century, done in revival styles. In 1854, the construction of the chapel began after the docks of St. Catherine Place were filled in. The original area had docks and a fish market, but flooded often, resulting in the need to fill in and reclaim the land. Today there is a square with a Christmas market and a long rectangular park extending north, where the Anspach Fountain has been relocated.
