Create an itinerary including Cathedral of Our Lady
Stand in wonder at the delicately carved reliefs and statuary of the iconic, yet incomplete, Cathedral of Our Lady. The cathedral's single Gothic spire pierces the sky at 123 m (404 ft); plans to build a matching partner were never realized. The cathedral played an important role in the development of choral music, with some of the 15th-century masters making their home here as vicars. Consider attending a concert in the chapel to experience the sounds that inspired an entire generation of musicians. Be sure to check out the Rubens painting housed inside; it was returned to its place after World War II.

  • Beautiful 🌹🌺 Cathedral, and Blessed Mother is very present there. Although I haven't physically visited here, I very much would love ❤️ to visit. Praise Jesus 🙏
  • Cathedral is really impressive inside. From the outside there are still works going so we didn't see much. I had a free guide who was really nice. This gentleman asked what i would like to know and then explained me such details which I would never have guessed. Highly recommended!
