This is the main and most grandious landmark in Nivelles. Apart from the bells ringing every 30m or so this is a must visit point. The inside is extremely rich, diverse and surprising, with all sorts of religious artifacts - wall paintings, altars, mosaics, statues,...More

A peaceful place to visit. The church was almost destroyed during the second world war and has been brought back to it s former simple elegance.Both the outside architecture and inside decoration, glass work and wood art are well worth a visit.
