I was awed by this cathedral. It perfectly complements the adjacent Cloth Hall. Rebuilt in the original style.

A very beautiful cathedral, rebuilt since the First World War. Has a small but interesting display about the role of the clergy in the War.

Destroyed as was much of Ypres in 1915, the Cathedral has been loving restored over the years. I believe the final bits were completed in 2011. It's free to entry, so take a while to have a good look at the restorations and some of...More
