Sint Niklaas

A charming Belgian village, home to several interesting historic sites, including the famous Walburg Castle.

The Church of Saint Nicholas was founded in the 13C and gave its name to the city. After heavy damage in the 16C, the interior was redone in the Baroque style. The Chapel of Saint Joseph was built in the 17C by the Franciscans. It was later integrated into a minor seminary and is now part of a high school. The Church of Our Lady and Town Hall, located on the largest market square in Belgium, is more recent (19C). The Gerardus Mercator Museum traces the history of cartography back to its origins. The museum also houses two original globes that belonged to the famous cartographer. Other churches and museums include: Saint Joseph, Christ the King, Salon for Fine Arts and Zwijgershoek.
