St Aubain's Cathedral, is the only cathedral in Belgium, built in academic Late Baroque style.

Rather dull looking on the outside, I decided to head inside and see what it was like.

No beautiful frescoes or anything like that, just plain white, with a richly ornamented frieze of carved fruit and flowers running in an unbroken band entirely round the church.
NO colour, but still the Dome viewed from the inside was quite beautiful!
A marble plaque near the high altar conceals a casket containing the heart of Don Juan of Austria, who died in 1578.

This Cathedral is classified as part of Wallonia's Major Heritage by the Walloon Region.
