  • Though I'm not religious, I can surely appreciate the architecture and beauty of a historic and impressive church like this one... it's very near the main square anyways, can't miss it

  • Very quiet place, they host the carriage for the Saint George festival and DouDou Dragon
  • The Church of Saint Nicholas is a 13th century church close to the Grand Place of Mons. The exterior is much younger than the interior due to restorations and rebuilding works over the centuries. The exterior is very much Baroque, while the interior is Romanesque. Although the interior is clearly classical in design, the chapels show clear Baroque influences, especially on the rich and ornate woodwork. The high altar is undoubtedly the masterpiece of the church, although I preferred the Chapel of St. Joseph for the beautiful sculptures shows off the translucence of alabaster with a flourish as well as the sculpture of an angel with infant Jesus. Not a must-see in Mons, but worthwhile time permitting.
