Why do people always want to see the Cathedral?
If your time is limited go and see this church.
'Johannes de doper kerk'
'john the Baptist church'
It is among the finest Baroque churches
in Belgium. The architect is unknown...
In 1579 the chapel was destroyed by 'Calvinists'
and completely broke down in 1584.
Years laterin 1657 the building of a new chuch
took a start. The facade has been restored
and partly substituted in 1980. That facade
is beautifull but not that strikingly.
The interior is quit rich .
The confessionals are an eyecatcher but
my favorite fractions are the angel faces
that ornament the bows to the side arches.
(The church is sometimes used for little
exhibitions , still the entrance is free. A must)
