St. Peter’s Church in Leuven, Belgium

Leuven Belgium

Back in the 10th century, a small church was built near the road named Cologne Bavay and the river Dijle. After the fire of 1176, a larger Romanesque church was erected. Its crypt still exists today under the present church.

When the town rallied after the political economic crisis at the beginning of the 15th century, they started to build the Gothic church, which is the one you can see and visit today.
