Construction of this Brabantine-Gothic church started in 1425, but unstable subsoil forced the builders to abandon a planned 170m-high tower, giving the northwest facade a distinctly unfinished look. The interior boasts an elaborately carved stone rood screen and baroque wooden pulpit. Visiting the schatkamer is free with an 'M' ticket. It features two priceless triptychs by Leuven-based Flemish Primitive artist Dirk Bouts including the 1464–67 masterpiece Het Laatste Avondmaal which curiously sets Jesus’ last supper in a typical Flemish Gothic dining hall. The panels have been ‘lost’ several times including during WWII when Nazis carted them off and hid them in a salt mine.
