When you enter, look for the handwoven wall carpets from the 18th century; further inside, look for the 15th-century altarpieces and the 16th-century podium in the choir.

Chiesa del XIII secolo è stata la prima chiesa in laterizio costruita in Belgio. All'esterno spicca la poderosa torre romanico-gotica di 99 metri. L'interno a 3 navate è molto vasto e sobrio.

Very nice black and white marbles of the jetty at the entrance. Very interesting are the Gothic stables of 1430, the great polyphore of the transept and the triptych of Saint Hippolytus of 1464.
Cattedrale in stile gotico dove l’architettura imponente la fa da padrone mentre l’interno non è riccamente decorato. La sala del tesoro è visitabile a pagamento. more »Gothic cathedral where the impressive architecture is the master while the interior is not richly decorated. The treasure hall can be visited for a fee.
I visited the chocolate capital of the world, Bruges in Belgium with my wife and two friends a few months ago. Whilst we were in the city we took the opportunity to have a look around inside the church. It's not a large building by any means, but I would definitely say it's worth a visit if you're ever visiting Belgium.
Ok. Went to see Michelangelo's statue which was lovely. It definitely worths a visit and the entrance fee is just €4 but nothing very special overall. Typical Catholic Church
