Photographer's Note

This is the view from the bell tower of the Cathedral in Mechelen. You can see the City Hall with the interesting facade as made from three parts and the courtyard inside, where the inflatable refugee was displayed. Near the steep roofs on the bottom you can see something rectangular, the walls of it provided nice reflections. it was difficult to find the place for a good view of the square, because of many protections - glass and iron bars. It was the best I could find.

Visiting St. Rumbolds Cathedral is fascinating enough- huge wood carved pulpit, fabulously displayed relics (bones and more!) and gothic 16th century carved choir. But the Bell Tower is a worthy climb up 538 steps (not all at once) with several floors to visit. Two Carillons and 49 working bells. You see the mechanisms for the clock chimes and a huge drum that plays the bell songs like a giant music box. Stone spiral steps, not for the immobile, and some wooden stairs too. AND a skywalk top with a fantastic view of Mechelen and Brussels in the distance.
