Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul

Local nameSint-Petrus-en-Pauluskerk
LocationOstend, België - Belgique - Belgien

Sint-Petrus-en-Pauluskerk is a Roman Catholic church in Ostend, Belgium. The neo-Gothic building was constructed on the ashes of a previous church that occupied the site. King Leopold II enthusiastically supported a plan to build a new and more magnificent church. Construction started in 1899 and was completed and consecrated by Bishop Waffelaert on 31 August 1908. Its stained glass windows were destroyed during the two World Wars and were replaced by windows by Michiel Martens. The church is 70 metres long and 30 metres wide. Its spires are 72 metres high.

The church was built in the neo-Gothic style according to plans by the architect Louis Delacenserie, who based his design on the Gothic Cologne Cathedral and the neo-Gothic Votivkirche in Vienna.
