Cathedral Basilica of Sint Bavo
Construction of the church
The founders made every effort and investment to turn the Cathedral Basilica of Sint Bavo into an extraordinary construction. In terms of size it equals Cologne Cathedral. Its exterior has been decorated with countless special ornaments, and its interior has also been decorated extensively and boasts a radiant cupola. The basilica’s interior was never completed due to a shortage of funds, however.
As if the architecture, organ, ornaments, decoration and size of the Cathedral Basilica of Sint Bavo were not imposing enough, you’ll also find the KathedraalMuseum filled with extraordinary art treasures in the crypt beneath the cathedral.
