  • Impressed with the building being rebuilt in the style it had been when destroyed in wartime. Some of the exhibits were impressive, but not as much as the magnificent interior views.

  • This cathedral is in the center of Ypres, very near the Cloth Hall. There was construction going on outside when we visited, but we were able to enter and admire the interior as well as most of the...

  • Finding a few minutes to myself in the middle of a school trip, I hesitantly walked through the door of this wonderful cathedral not know what to expect. The sight was inspiring. I loved the solemn atmosphere and was thrilled to have the whole building to myself on a pleasant Friday morning. The artwork that adorned the walls was beautiful and the sculptures had a great variety. I particularly liked looking at the history of the building and reconciling the ruins to the restoration and how tastefully it has been done. The carvings salvaged from the ruins are a great reminder of the near total destruction of the building and put into perspective just how amazing the reconstruction of this building is. It was an amazing moment of calm and one of my favourite moments of our two day tour of the area.
  • Splendid and huge cathedral from Ieper, never get enough of visit it !
