Notre-Dame Cathedral

For the cathedral in Paris, see Notre Dame de Paris

The Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Tournai, Belgium, was built in the first half of the 12th century. It is especially distinguished by a Romanesque nave of extraordinary dimensions, a wealth of sculpture on its capitals and a transept topped by five towers, all precursors of the Gothic style. The choir, rebuilt in the 13th century, is in the pure Gothic style.[1]
