Stand in wonder at the delicately carved reliefs and statuary of the iconic, yet incomplete, Cathedral of Our Lady. The cathedral's single Gothic spire pierces the sky at 123 m (404 ft); plans to build a matching partner were never realized. The cathedral played an important role in the development of choral music, with some of the 15th-century masters making their home here as vicars. Consider attending a concert in the chapel to experience the sounds that inspired an entire generation of musicians. Be sure to check out the Rubens painting housed inside; it was returned to its place after World War II.

Amazing mirror paint work. Craft work is attractive. But one must look at the rusted green statues just outside the church (I don't want to reveal the surprise you see there). Also the white marble sleeping boy statue under the tiles.
Fabulous. One of the most impressive cathedrals you could hope to visit, not just for the stunning architecture but the collection of paintings, sculptures and carvings are incredible. And the Rubens masterpieces 😮 Brilliant. Worth getting here as close to opening as you can manage; it gets a little busy, as you can imagine...
