The Church of St. Nicholas, the parish church of Rekkem, now part of Menen, goes back to the 12th century. Part of the transept is Romanesque, as is the square crossing tower that is constructed in quarry stone from Tournai. The Romanesque church burned down in 1658 and was largely rebuilt in the Gothic style. A polygonal choir was added shortly afterwards. The sacristy was built on in 1950, when the whole church was also renovated. Inside the church, the paintings of Evarist Carpentier, Arthur Deltour and Andreas Bosteels demand the most attention. There are still numerous examples of Romanesque parish churches in the Leie Region.
