The Crypt

The Crypt of Ronse (at 1′ walking distance from Adelaide) is unique and can not be missed. The Crypt serves as a repository for the relics of Saint-Hermes, patron saint of the nervous and mental illnesses. In the Middle Ages, Ronse was an important religious center. Pilgrims came from far and wide to ask for help and healing. The eleventh-century building has 32 columns, has beautiful natural stone walls, a hidden tomb and a water well with bathrooms for the sick visitors. You will also find a permanent exhibition of all archeological discoveries since 1948. You can also see the so-called “zottenboek”, a guestbook for the pilgrims. There are audio guides available in 4 languages.
