Onze Lieve Vrouwebasiliek information
Onze Lieve Vrouweplein is an intimate cafe-filled square named after its church, the Onze Lieve Vrouwebasiliek, which has parts dating from before 1000 and may well be built on the foundations of a Roman cathedral. There is a separate treasury area that houses gaudy jewels and riches. The candle-filled shrine to Mary Star of the Sea near the entrance has been drawing pilgrims for more than 300 years.
