In St Peter’s Church in Leuven, you can view many unique and precious objects – some more famous than others. We take a closer look at one such object in every issue of M, starting with a very special 16th-century model.
If the plans had gone ahead, St Peter’s Church would now have a church tower of over 150 metres high – the highest in the Low Countries. Moreover, it was to be flanked by two side towers measuring some 130 metres each. That’s still more than the 123 metres of Belgium’s current number one, the Antwerp tower of Our Lady.
