The Saint-Jacques-le-Mineur church in Liège

  • Religious heritage

The Benedictine Saint-Jacques abbey was founded in 1015. The actual church, built between 1514 and 1538 is a fantastic example of Gothic flamboyant architecture. Its XVIth century stained windows, 14th-century stalls, and rich furniture make it an exceptional gem - worth a detour if you're visiting the region near Liège.

The church is open and can be visited outside mass time.

The remains of the Romanesque crypt can be visited on request.

Groups: all year, by appointment.
A volunteer guide is available between March and October - please ask when booking your visit.
