  • Beautiful church with beautiful works, including a Descent of the Cross, by Antoine Van Dyck and a Christ in the Cross by Philippe de Champaigne. The Counts' Room is remarkable and offers a real lesson in the history of Flanders. Do not miss the ambulatory with the reproduction of the "golden smelts" now gone. A very nice visit to this building that shines more by its works than by its architecture.
