It’s a lovely, peaceful walk north along the canal to reach this stately redbrick church. Our Lady of the Pottery's infirmary, founded in 1276 to care for the elderly, the sick, and the poor as well as travelers and pilgrims, now holds a delightfully eclectic collection of religious articles. There’s also an ornate baroque chapel housing a 13th-century statue of the Madonna and Child, as well as tapestries and a pretty cloister. There are stained-glass windows depicting miracles, and a silver cabinet with reliquaries, candlesticks and baptismal fonts, all used during services today. This is hardly a blockbuster of a museum, but it is a charming and a cool oasis of calm, especially in the busy summer months.
