Listed by UNESCO for its 5 bell towers, its nave and transept of Romanesque style, Notre-Dame Cathedral is a gem of medieval architecture.

Its rather large nave counts 4 horizontal levels along 8 spans. The columns are topped with capitals often decorated with botanical details and are all different: a hundred different pieces in total, quite unique in Belgium!

Have a look at the central choir screen: a renaissance masterpiece by Flemish sculptor Corneille de Vriendt. The south part of the transept shows a succession of exceptional stained windows.

At the heart of the Gothic choir (58 m long and 36 high), a marble altar taken from the St Martin de Tournai abbey dominates the scene.
