Tournai/Doornik

TOURNAI '(Flemish Doornik), a city of Belgium, in the province of Hainaut, situated on the Scheldt
Tournai is considered to be one of the most important cultural sites in Belgium. The mixed Romanesque- and Gothic-style cathedral of Notre Dame de Tournai and the belfry, the oldest in Belgium, have been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Other places of interest are the 13th-century Scheldt bridge (Pont-des-Trous) and the main square (Grand'Place), as well as several old city gates, historic warehouses, and a variety of museums.

    Tournai looks like a picturesque little spot! Too bad the Church of St-Quentin had that beautiful cross stolen though.
