Back to my archive, picture taken during a visit Diksmuide

St. Nicholas Church Diksmuide Belgium
The original church was dedicated in 1144 by Bishop Milo van Terwaan and gradually expanded in the course of the thirteenth century. In 1333 the church was laid by fire in the ashes. Remainder of the original building is being processed in the new construction. Also in 1573 and 1672 the church was plagued by fire, resulting in the necessary restoration and repair work. During the First World War the church was completely destroyed. The German artillery, operating from Klerken, used the tower spikes as a landmark for the shooting of Diksmuide.
The Bruges architect Jozef Virin led from 1923 to 1925 the reconstruction of pre-war model. On May 27, 1940, one day before the end of the Second World War, the church was destroyed again when the Germans fought her with fire bombs. The subsequent restoration work led by the architects Joseph and Luc Virin continued until the early 50's..
