Saint John the Baptist’s Church, Leuven

Saint John the Baptist’s Church, Leuven

Situated within the Great Beguinage, this protected early Gothic church is a great piece of ecclesiastical and architectural history in the city. It first began as a small project in the 14th Century and then over a period of hundreds of years, it began to be developed into a much larger church. It shows signs of both Gothic and Baroque influence, making it one of the more fascinating churches in the city. This chapel has a new carillon since autumn 2009.
