  • The present church was built between 1715 and 1732 to replace a former Gothic one, which had been destroyed by a fire the previous year. The layout of the nave and chancel is the work of an architect from Mons, Claude de Bettignies, who reused some elements of the old church. As far as the belfry surmounting the building is concerned, it was made in 1719/1720. Inside the church, you can especially admire the reliquary of St George, some paintings from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, and five neo-Gothic altarpieces with original polychrome.

    Every day from 9 to 18.
