Eglise Notre-Dame de l'Assomption


Located near the Semois, this church presents a disparate character on the exterior due to the presence of different architectural styles. In the interior, the sumptuous decoration of the church, the richness of the furnishings are surprising for a village church, but are explained by the presence of the Jesuits, who were the owners of the premises for two centuries.

Thus one will notice the high altar and the cathedra of truth in Renaissance style, which are distinguished by the quality of the woodwork and by the ornamentation. Very beautiful statues of saints in polychrome wood dating generally from the 16th century, especially of Jesuit saints such as Ignatius and Francis Xavier. Numerous paintings on wood and on canvas. Restored stained glass windows and organs.
