The Onze-Lieve-Vrouw-van-Hanswijkkerk is one of the most important creations of sculptor-architect Lucas Faydherbe. The original building concept testifies to his inventive spirit. It is one of the first domed churches in the Low Countries. At the foot of the dome, you can see two impressive pictorial reliefs referring to the Seven Joys and Seven Sorrows of Mary. At the heart of the church is the miraculous statue of the Virgin Mary, which is carried in the annual Hanswijk procession.
