I can't tell if this is a reliquary or a tabernacle. In any case, they're closely related. A reliquary is a storage place for a relic - a piece of a dead saint. A tabernacle is a storage place for concecrated hosts - pieces of jesus. Their evolution and the adoration of relics and the adoration of the eucharist (a piece of jesus) is closely linked.
This is in the Mechelen cathedral.
