The chapel of Saint-Antoine


 

This little country oratory with a single rectangular nave, dedicated to Saint Antoine, is built entirely from Gobertange blocks. Mentioned as early as the 16th century, it has two round windows that can be seen in the south wall. Adjoining this main building is a narrower chancel with three walls, built in brick and Gobertange stone. Levelled in 2001, a pinnacle from the second half of the 17th century once rose above a simple Baroque door headed by a chronogram from the first half of the 18th century. A place of worship perhaps linked to a quarantine station, the oratory was originally surrounded by a cemetery.
