This church was built in the 1400s and is a historic gem. The church is open during the day for anyone to walk around. Amazing architecture.
The church is impressively big. It worths a visit inside as well as enjoying a cup of coffee at the square having a view to the church.
We enjoyed mass here on Sunday morning despite the fact we do not speak Flemish. It was a spiritual and pleasant experience. Sad that attendance is so poor.

A beautiful old church that is impressive for its sheer size alone, especially when viewed from within. Be sure to pay the one or two Euros to go into the museum part and do the self guided audio tour. They actually have a pretty impressive collection of art and artifacts!
The interior is being restored so it cannot be fully appreciated. We went to Sunday mass and the organ playing filled the huge interior with music to make it a most memorable occasion.
As others have said, this is a beautiful light and airy church. Currently, there is some construction. Do not miss the pulpit which is beautifully carved. I didn't find a description of the carving (in English or Flemish) which I would have found helpful and interesting.
