Saint-Calixte Chapel and Castle Comtal Museum in Mons

  • Museum & discovery
  • Monument

The Chapelle Saint-Calixte de Mons is home to the Château Comtal museum. We discover an exhibition on the Belfry, vestiges and other frescoes.

The Saint-Calixte Chapel is the oldest religious building in Mons. You can visit its exhibitions and its interior decor.

The Saint-Calixte Chapel, which takes its name from a pope, dates from the 11th century and was decorated with Romanesque frescoes discovered in the 19th century and restored in the 20th century. The Gothic vault dates from the 14th century and the crypt, which used to be a castle cellar, is made of rough materials. The Comtal Castle Museum contains archeological finds, medieval iconographies, remains of the castle and other very interesting objects. The Belfry of Mons, recognized as World Heritage by UNESCO, and its park adjoins the whole. The Belfry is under construction and will be available again in December 2014.
