Tournai Things to Do: 88 reviews and 177 photos


In 1288, one more parish is created. The building of the new church starts slowly. The tower is finished in the 14th century.
Louis XIV later decides to cancel this parish and the church is given to monks who transform it into an abbey.
Burned in 1723, it has been rebuilt in 1760.
Today the church is closed and in a pretty bad state, it requires urgent work but nothing seems to be done…
