Deze kerk was heel wat ruimer en hoger gepland. De middenbeuk werd niet doorgetrokken tot de voorziene lengte, waardoor de zijbeuken de hoofdmoot lijken uit te maken. Er hangt een Rubens. De glasramen... read more »This church was a lot more spacious and higher planned. The main nave was not extended to the planned length, making the side aisles the bulk seem to matter.

Находится рядом к местной Гроте маркт, этакая готическая мрачноватая громада. Внезапно оказалось открыто, чем мы и воспользовались, и не зря - в одной из боковых капелл (слева от алтаря) есть полотно ... read more »Is located next to the local Grote Markt, a sort of gloomy Gothic community. Suddenly turned openly than we took, and for good reason-in one of the side chapels (to the left of the altar) there is a canvas by Rubens.

In the Church of Saint Martin is the afternoon line or Meridian in the form of a copper strip in the floor. Shortly after noon, when the Sun by a bullion (hole) in the Sint Maarten stained-glass (people's window), this gives a beam of light on the copper LAT. This means noon solar hour (so not exactly 12 hours on your watch!). Step on a sunny day definitely agree inside the Church, you can maybe catch a glimpse of this light show that all in 6 seconds.show original
