It had to be rebuilt a lot but there seem to be some early stone near the front. Inside is mostly dark wood creating a peaceful atmosphere. Interestingly, the hall bends in the middle.

This small church is almost 1,000 years old, but little remains of the original structure. Its 11th-century Romanesque lines are hidden by a 14th-century Gothic facade and the repairs made after the French bombardment of 1695. A cannonball fired by the French in 1695 is...More

This beautiful and small church is situated around old houses, close to the Grand place. It's a really old church that was repaired after the French bombardments, that's why the main facade looks so Gothic?! Beautiful inside 😍
