St. Peter and St. Paul Church, Oostende, Belgium

The massive bulk of the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul is the most memorable thing about the Port of Oostende, it dominates the area around the harbour and, since recent cleaning, it positively shines.

Despite looking like an ancient Gothic church most of what is left today was built at the beginning of the 20th Century and is a good example of how to build a modern church without making it ugly. Behind the massive twin-towered facade are parts of the original 16th Century church which stood on the site.
