This Cathedral has a lot to see including both modern statues and old paintings. There is also a phtograph above the entrance showing the state it was in after WW1.

Gothic architecture at its finest. A huge cathedral that fills the skyline. Very impressive and atmospheric inside. We'll worth a trip and light a candle.

The cathedral is quite a sight, amazing how it has been rebuilt following the destruction of WW1. My Grandfather had been billeted here so quite a sentimental visit.

Third time visiting Ypres and this cathedral is a must see. There's modern and old art inside plus lost of information on the history of the building.

On our central Ypres tour we took 30 mins to wander into this amazing cathedral. Hard to imagine how such an edifice was rebuilt to such perfect standards after the destruction of ww1. A wonderful feeling of serenity on entry.
