Nobody in the temple
Jun 2019
The church dates back to the Middle Age, but it suffered several transformations since then. The tower was built in neo-Gothic style. The nave and the two aisles of the church are simple, yet beautiful. Nice altar and arches, and the organ inside looked good. No visitor when I was there, so that I could get a better feel of the atmosphere.

strangely austere for a Catholic church
Oct 2019
I had a look in the Eglise St Géry. It is quite simple inside for a Catholic church and the principal one of the diocese. It has massive pillars that told me straightaway it was old. In fact 13th century. But it was later damaged during the Reformation and became protestant for a while. That might account for its simplicity. It was partially rebuilt with a belfroi added later. Further damage occurred during the world wars followed by two devastating fires in the 1950s.
The church is in a nice setting with a fine statue of Antoine Watteau in the grounds. The early 18th century painter in the Roccoco style was born in the town.

If you love churches, then this is for you

Our friends and I were shown around this church as someone we knew grew up in this town and attended this church regularly while growing up.

We found the church to be rather beautiful, but none of us are really religious. We went to to find out more about it's history and to look at the architecture. So if you like that kind of stuff, you'll love it.

Pretty church with a small park outside

Pretty, small church with a square tower and newer stained glass. There is a small park outside with a statue of a local artist
