Notre-Dame-aux-Riches-Claires

by Vincent

L’église Notre-Dame-aux-Riches-Claires is a little gem of a church  made all of red bricks dating back from 1617 and build in the Flemish Renaissance style. The layout was made for two distinct purposes. The main part was used by the congregation and the other adjacent building was a convent for nuns that was converted into privately owned apartments in the 19th century.
