  Saint Cath'lin's church in pure gothic architectur
by Pavlik_NL

Walking along the long narrow street that we entered at the Minderbroeders chapel we will suddenly stand in front of a wide square with in it's midst a church. This is the Saint Cath'lin's church or Sint Katelijne in Flemish. "Katelijne" is a typical Belgian woman's name as in Dutch you will not hear it so often. The church is built in a gentle gothic style and houses paintings from Van der Veken, Boeckstuyns, Valckx and Langhemans. It dates back to the 14th century.
