Relocation of the masterpieces

The final stage begins in the restoration of the church’s interior. The M-Treasury at St Peter’s is closed to allow this work. Masterpieces by several Flemish Masters that were displayed in the choir, including The Last Supper by the Leuven painter Dirk Bouts, are moved temporarily to the nave of St Peter’s Church.
