4.0
View artwork from different periods of Belgium's history at Holy Savior Cathedral (Sint-Salvatorskathedraal), one of the city's most significant churches. While the first parish church was established here in the 10th century, the oldest remaining part of today's 19th-century Romanesque structure is the foundation of the tower, dating back to the 12th century. When you enter, look for the handwoven wall carpets from the 18th century; further inside, look for the 15th-century altarpieces and the 16th-century podium in the choir. Look up to see the arched buttresses and wood carving. This centrally located church is a good stop on any walking tour of the city.

  • This Gothic-style cathedral contains many bright and magnificent stained glass windows, many ancient paintings, a beautiful pulpit, beautiful ancient carpets and splendid statues. It deserves a thorough visit. When I visited it, restoration work made it clear to appreciate all the wonders it contains.

  • Place of visit: Cathedral of San Salvador Date of the visit: August 21, 2019 Surrounded by small buildings stands out over the houses that surround it, with that impressive tower. It is interesting to make a visit even if inside it is not as spectacular as others.
