About this spot
Bellingen is a village in the Belgian province of Flemish Brabant, and part of the municipality of Pepingen, located in the Pajottenland.
The late Gothic Church of Our Lady, built between 1619 and 1635. The church is located to the north of the village center on the site of the former Augustinian priory and was the priory church until the French Revolution. It was even an abbey church until 1677 because the priory was elevated to an abbey between 1580 and 1677. After the abolition of the priory by the French occupation, it became the village church of Bellingen. The Onze-Lieve-Vrouwkerk was protected as a monument in 1943.
Along the church is the former abbey farm Cantimpré, the current buildings of which date from the beginning of the 19th century. In the yard are bluestone stones with the year 1609 as inscription. The abbey farm was protected as a monument in 1983.
The adjacent Hof ter Kammen was also protected as a monument in 1983.
The surroundings of the church and the two farms were also protected as a village view in 1983.
