Overview

The 15th century St. Elizabethgasthuiskapel is a chapel integrated in the old Saint Elizabeth hospital, built in the 13th century. The chapel is no longer used for services. The hospital itself has been restored and converted into a cultural centre, called Elzenveld, with conference and meeting rooms. The nave of the chapel was erected in the beginning of the 15th century in the typical Brabant gothic style with beautiful pillars. The chancel was added later, between 1442 and 1460, and is as long as the nave. You'll find works of art by Godfried Maes and Frans Francken de Jonge.
