"Visit Saint Rumbold Cathedral" Mechelen Things to Do Tip by DanielF

Mechelen Things to Do: 193 reviews and 305 photos

Saint Rumbold Cathedral is the spritual centre of Belgium, for Mechlin has been since the XVI the seat of the Archbishop of the Low Countries. (Even today the Primate of Belgium shares its see between Brussels and Mechlin).

In consonance with such status of primacy, the cathedral of Mechlin was built in a grand Brabant Gothic style as one of the largest and most beautiful religious buildings in the country.

The Cathedral is named after an Irish monk who, apparently, christianised the city.
