Had the pleasure of wondering around Winchester this afternoon! I’ve gotta say, it’s an absolutely beautiful city, I’ll definitely be coming back.

Back to my regular content: Belgian (gothic) architecture!

I visited Lier today, a small town between Mechelen and Antwerp. Small, but with a rich history. By far the most important monument of Lier is the church of St Gummarus, patron saint of the town. It's only a parish church, not a cathedral, but it's dimensions are certainly deserving of cathedral status.

The church is visible from far away thanks to its striking tower, 83 m tall, and affectionately nicknamed the 'Peperbus' or Pepper Canister by Felix Timmermans, Lier's most notable author. Originally, the tower was supposed to have a different, taller, and completely gothic spire, but as with many towers in Brabant it was never finished. The top level is noticably different in style, and is in fact a baroque addition. The rest of the church is purely gothic, however, and brilliantly pure in style. It's the interior that is really impressive, though - I'll post pictures in my next post.

Stay tuned!
