  • You feel welcome when you enter this church. A small entrance fee is needed. But you get a hand-out in your language. I didn't read it because there is a lot to see. But make sure to watch the nice short video. The staff started it in Dutch, just for me! The baptismal font is very impressive. It is created with the lost wax method casting method. It is a very old method but it needs an enormous craftsmanship. The size , the sculpture and the openness proves that the make was a master in this craft. It is supposed to be from about 1107, but I personally think it could be much older. because it's very classical appearance.
  • A Catholic church with a different outer design due to its historical factors that you usually don't see in Belgium. Though the church isn't free for visitors, and you have to pay a visiting fee of 3 euros per adult.
  • Nice lady’s at the reception, they also played a video explaining the church history in English. Quite nice the restoration work they had here, it look amazing inside.
  • I pass this church on the way to Musee Curtuis. One of the original seven collegiate churches of Liège, it an interesting example of Ottonian architecture and very photogenic with it's red boundary lines.
  • Beautiful and interesting and quiet old church. English video and handout available.
