The cathedral's history starts already in 1352 and it took 170 years to build this gothic masterpeace. It?s best feature I think is the 'onze-lieve-vrouwe-toren', strectching 123 meters height, she is majestic. The interior is dominated by 48 beautiful columns but the main tourist attraction are the presences of some Rubens masterpieces. Ensure that you do not forget to closely inspect the pulpit designed by Michiel van der Voort.

Beware that visits aren't free , and not allowed during religious ceremonies. entrance for 60+ is 3.00 euro and others are 5 euro. well worth the visit.
