Description

An interior view of the nave looking down towards the apse. Built in the Brabantine Gothic style, the nave contains high, four part vaults. A statue of an apostle adorns each of the pillars. Towards the right middle ground of the image stands the baroque pulpit, which depicts the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden.
