SAINT-AUBAIN CATHEDRAL

SAINT-AUBAIN CATHEDRAL
© OPT - JP Remy

This baroque cathedral was built between 1751 and 1767 based on a design of Gaetino Pizzoni. This building replaced the previous cathedral, of which a 13th century tower still exists. The curved front is decorated with 20 Corinthian columns and is crowned by 5 statues. The original plan also included 2 towers. The crossing carries a large dome. The classicist side-façades contrast with the rich front. The interior contains some remarkable pieces of art, such as paintings of Antoon van Dyck, Jacob Jordaens and Nicolaï (a student of Rubens'). There is also an old baptismal font.
