Description

This Neoclassical cathedral built in 1844 sports remarkably lavish interior decoration, with stuccowork and gilding. In the new Treasury, look out for the carved wooden Gothic altarpiece (16C), back in place since 2019, after a 4-year restoration. This carved and gilded wooden sculpture charts the life of Christ and Mary and its dimensions and quality make it one of the most important Flemish works of art of its kind.
