  • The Place and its collegiate church of Saint Gertrude are must-see places of Nivelles. The collegiate church is majestic and impressive. Its cloister is not bad d activities such as the Christmas market. The edges have been redeveloped. Everything is well maintained. The downside in any season is the parking.

  • The Collegiate Church of Nivelles, Saint Gertrude, is a superb monument, sober and majestic. You must visit inside, as well as his cloister in which happen regularly in various activities. Hunting out 1 time per year on a chariot pulled by horses to ride the "Sainte Gertrude", pilgrimage of 20 km around Nivelles. Note also the carillon in July concerts

  • Beautiful medieval Abbey. A must-see!
  • Beautiful roman church, very rare in this country
  • A must seen
  • very pretty collegiate Sainte Gertrude, of Romanesque and Gothic style. the catacombs are interesting to visit. in some (e.g. heritage) days a tour up to the Bell Tower allows to see the collegiate d a point of view central and "air". To attend the concert of bells etc. the cloister is very often rather than various exhibitions, very nice because it is laid out and adapted to the times. around this beautiful Collegiate Church, breweries and a multitude of terraces welcomes tourists.

  • What I liked: the size of the building which dominates the whole of the square by its architecture Romane well-preserved considering its date of construction. The presence of the statue of Jean de Nivelles on the side of a Tower (or tower), all Golden, witness of the binding of the town and its slightly less sacred folklore heritage. The reinforcement of the side access doors where we guess the age of the building by reducing the thickness of the metal over time.
