Notre-Dame church

The current appearance of the Notre-Dame church, which was reconstructed from 1440 to around 1582, is in the style of the 15th and 16th centuries. This structure shows the transition from late Medieval times to the early Renaissance period, and was then adapted to changes in taste. Renaissance ornamental motifs can be discerned hidden within its flamboyant gothic decor (left-hand side of the south facade). This church is “multi-gabled”, meaning its aisles feature numerous gables, while their large windows allow daylight to shine through and brighten up the building, which lacks high windows. The main west façade received less work than the south façade. It was hidden by the wooden Great Linen Hall, which was replaced after the 1886 fire with a Butter Hall made with cast iron and bricks. This was destroyed in the 1960s.
