Very big, very Gothic, very high, very everything! It has a central place by the river, with the same name bridge just in front of the church. You can enter and see the amazing Gothic arcs and the temple

Went round this Church, each side of it is so interesting. There is lots to see and different nooks and crannies to explore, Well worth a look, especially from the water.

Impressive church also known as Sint Michielskerk. Although it was closed when we went, you can get some fine views and photos from St Michael's Bridge (Sint-Michielsplein).
