A little less visited then the other churches, but very beautiful church, with 2 organs, many paintings and statues, and stone tombs inside. Always nice to see how they preserve these churches and of course, a place to find some peace!

Beautifully renovated neo-Gothic church. Unique tower clock and very worthy interior. Hans Memling is buried outside of this church, as such is Pieter Pourbus.

Cute church in a quiet neighborhood, not too far from the Chocolate Museum. Initially it was a parish, but it was updated into a church in 1258. The interior is Gothic revival style. It has numerous paintings. Many famous painters, such as Memling (d.1494) were...More
