Saint Peter´s Church & Dieric Bouts

This 15th-century church is a classic example of Late Gothic architecture. Outside, you can clearly see the towers have never been completed due to an unstable soil. In 1980, the impressive ambulatory turned into a museum housing numerous statues, paintings and a collection of gold and silver pieces such as reliquaries, monstrances and chalices.
