This church is unique, as it’s included on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list for its belfries, despite its towers never being completed. The current Gothic structure built over 50 years, starting in 1425, never had its towers realised, after a lack of funds and unsteady foundation. While you won’t see any soaring spires, the art here is quite remarkable, as is the 13th century stone crypt on which this church was built.

The entrance door is a bit narrow (77 cm). There are occasionally steep inclines between the stairs in the church. You might need help opening the door to the counter and the door to Sacrament Chapel. The crypt is only accessible via stairs. There is an adapted toilet where you can make a sideways transfer (the space in front of the toilet is just barely 80 cm). Do you need someone to accompany you?
