Ã‰glise Notre-Dame-du-Bon-Secours, or in English the church of Our Lady of Assistance is located at Rue du MarchÃ© au Charbon. Originally a modest 12th century chapel that became too small for the growing Parish the architects Pierre-Paul Merckx and Jean Corvrindt demolished the surrounding walls and built in 1669 the church we know of today. They took inspiration from Italy when designing this church. The result was a very skillful combination of two styles produced a very interesting Baroque Flemish-Italian mix that differs a lot from the traditional Flemish style.
