Onze-Lieve-Vrouw-Bezoekingkerk Lissewege (Our Lady of the Visitation Church Lissewege)

The 13th-century brick Church of Our Lady of Visitation is a textbook example of ‘coastal Gothic’. Its remarkable interior has a miraculous statue of the Virgin Mary (1625), an exceptional organ case and a beautifully sculptured rood loft and pulpit (1652). A lack of money meant that the tower was never finished, which accounts for its rather ‘blunt’ appearance. Anyone who makes the effort to climb all 264 steps of tower will be rewarded with a panoramic view over the polders towards Ostend and Bruges.
