St. Peter's ChurchThe St. Peter's Church in Leuven is situated on the main market square opposite the Town Hall. The construction of the church started in 1425 and was end in 1497, except for three towers. Construction of the towers was stopped in 1541 because the foundations were considered too weak to support any taller structures. Inside the church is the treasury of St. Peter with two masterpieces of the Flemish painter Dirk Bouts on display.
