  • Beautiful church in the centre of Tournai. It makes a beautiful combination of Gothic neoGothic and Roman styles. Given the name of the church it is quite easy to know on which way it lies.
  • Impressive once you know what (not) to see! Old (still used) church, fully ravaged in the middle ages during the reformation, remained as it was. All statues and furniture are gone, one small half-statue is left to be found, hidden (seek), though ravaged (see picture). Impressive environment, stripped naked stones, what a great acoustics. If you (also) go visit the popular 'cathedral' (the 5 towers, also near the grand place),... first come to see this impressive (in it's nakedness) old churh,... than, and only than, go visit that cathedral in the city that gave birth to France (Clovis) and realize that it once was as looted and naked as this icone of human madness.
