Notre-Dame de Bonsecours basilica

  • Monument
  • Religious heritage

The Bon-Secours basilica is a remarkable Neo-gothic building located by the Franco Belgian border. Take a step inside: gothic vaults, sweet little chapels... 

It is the centre of a pilgrimage that began in the Middle Ages around an old oak tree dedicated to Notre-Dame-du-chêne-entre-deux-bois). It served to mark the boundary between Péruwelz, Condé and Blaton. A brand was used to sculpt the Black Virgin statue that is now in the church. Said to have saved the village from the plague, it has attracted pilgrims since the 17th century.
