Bottelare is a village in the province of East-Flanders, Belgium, at the edge of the Flemish Ardennes. It is now part of the municipality of Merelbeke.

During the 17th century, Bottelare became a famous pilgrimage place, dedicated to Saint Anne.[1] Its gorgeous hall church, a large statue of Saint Anne and the Saint Anne Chapel in the village centre are witnesses of this.
