Visited the cathedral as part of a short visit to Ypres. Superb building, rebuilt after the 1st World War, with some beautiful stained glass windows.
The cathedral is very peaceful and quiet usually, but at the moment a new coffee shop is being constructed - and why not ?. It has become much more busy since the WW1 centenary, so not quite so tranquil. Worth a visit.

We parked next to a beautiful building [St Martin's Cathedral] where there were timber frame repairs to delicate spires and roof decorations. My son is a Timber framer, and he looked at the job, and said it was interesting what the framers were doing.... 更多
tucked away off the Market Square the Cathedral offers an oasis of calm to reflect on the pain and suffering experienced by the people of this area. It offers strength, peace and beauty.
