St Bartholomew Church

This Gothic church with preserved, 63 m high tower from 1554 is certainly worth a visit. The only part that survived the fire of 1853 and thus original is the big tower with brick top. This hall church has three naves with transept. The furniture mainly goes back to the 19th century. A few
pieces escaped the fire from 1853. You’ll find the communion rail containing four 18th century panels the church bought in 1805 from the St Donaas Church in Bruges. The pulpit dates from 1715. The jewel of the church is the madonna with child from ca 1600. The church organ was made in 1854-1855 by Pieter Loncke.
