  • Imposing Gothic church which stands on one side of the Saint Elisabeth Béguinage (on the other side is St Martin the other large church of Kortrijk) inside is very simple with clear walls enlivened by large stained glass Windows and frescoes-free contains some important paintings and sculptures. Interesting also the lateral Chapel of the counts of Flanders. Enjoyable visit.
