  Church of the Abbey of Tongerlo
by filipdebont

The Church of the Abbey of Tongerlo is built in 1851 - 1858 and is designed by the Antwerp architect Paul Stoop.

It is built in a neo-gothic style. The tower is 75 m height, and was rebuilt in 1929 by architect Lamy, after a fire.

When I visited the Abbey of Tongerlo, there was a eucharisty going on, so it was impossible to visit the church.

As one should not forget that this is a place of peace and prayer in the first place, so respect is asked.
