‘Kortrijk - Church of Our Lady ’


I started my Kortrijk series with a photo I took atop the 83 meter high tower of the Saint Martin's Church (Sint-Maartenskerk) and I end my series with another photo taken on that tower.
Here you can see the Church of Our Lady (Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk ).

This church is one of the oldest buildings in the city and is a protected monument.
Its construction started in 1199 and in December 1203 the first worship service was held in the choir of the new church.

In my main photo it looks like the church has multiple towers. However, two towers that you see are the Broel Towers that pop up just behind the roof.
In the WS another photo taken down on the street while the church catches the afternoon sun.
