Eglise Saint-Georges et Sainte-Ode

Eglise Saint-Georges et Sainte-Ode


 

Situated in the centre of Amay, the bold look of this collegiate church attracts one’s gaze by its imposing mass and its three majestic towers.

The original Romanesque building was erected in 1089 but it has been altered frequently, above all in the 18th century. The severe original character has been embellished and refined.

The church has two treasures: a superb Merovingian sarcophagus of sancta Chrodoara which is found through a large glazed opening in the centre of the choir and the reliquary of Saint George and Sainte Ode dating from 1240, a masterpiece of gold and silver work from the Meuse area.
