Vlaamse Meesters in Situ Sint-Martens-Lierde Sint-Martinuskerk

The canvases, incorporated in the colourful panelling, depict scenes from the life of Saint Bruno of Cologne who founded the Carthusian monastic order.

St Martin’s church

Once a Carthusian church, the building was turned into a parish church dedicated to Saint Martin and duly refurbished, adding a wall around the church yard and a tower onto the old building. The grand plans at the start of the 20th century (1902) for the extension of the church with a transept never came to fruition.
