The Saint-Etienne church, one of the oldest in Belgium, is the only one to have kept its dedicatory stone, commemorating its consecration in 1050. Its stained windows were the very last work of artist Jean-Michel Folon.
This remarkable Romanesque building, considered a major Walloon heritage site, hides many gems... real masterpieces, inside, by the Maître de Waha, a 16th sculptor known for his surprising, caricature like pieces.
An audio-visual presentation shows Jean-Michel Folon's explanations on the making of the stained windows as well as the most interesting pieces of interest in the church. Another is dedicated to the Maître de Waha.
The church cannot be visited during services.
