After visiting Rampart Cemetery, on the way to the market square, we found this church. We always go into a church when it´s open and then light a candle. It´s quite a big church. Beautiful interior. I love the leadlight windows. There is an exposition about the Treasury of Saint Peter´s Church at this moment.

The Romanesque church was built in the 1200's. It was rebuilt as a Gothic structure in the mid 1600's. The church was almost destroyed during WWI. Only it's walls were left standing. The noted reconstruction architect Jules Cooman was charged with designing the new church.
