The Elevation of the Cross is in all aspects a typical example of the altarpieces Anthony van Dyck created during his second Antwerp period, featuring strongly emotional/devotional content.

Church of Our Lady

Originally part of a fortified castle, the medieval Church of Our Lady contains a magnificent chapel (the Count’s chapel) with murals commissioned by the counts of Flanders and a statue of Saint Catherine (a recognised top piece). Louis II of Flanders had it erected as a mausoleum for himself in 1370.
