About this spot
St. Martin's Basilica is a Gothic church in the Flemish Brabant town of Halle, dedicated to Saint Martin of Tours, where many works of art from the period of construction are still present in situ. It is a place of pilgrimage and was elevated to basilica in 1946 by Pope Pius XII. Since then, the church has also been referred to as the Basilica of Our Lady [1]. It became a protected monument by the Royal Decree of December 30, 1933.

The basilica dominates the city view of Halle, its tower is one of the thirty tallest in the country.
