The Notre-Dame Belfry (Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk) of the Church of Our Lady is the high point of the city and dates from the 13th and 14th centuries. This building dominates internally as well. Inside is a work by Michaelangelo, one of the very few to ever have left Italy. This fine sculpture of the master is in a chapel of the church and was donated by Jan Van Moeskroen, an obviously wealthy merchant, for this, his parish church.
Pic 3 shows one of the entries to the building, itself a fine work.
