The Collegiate Church
A majestic, yet unpretentious, gothic-style monument, the building is admired for its massive structure and its understated, yet fascinating decor. Stained glass windows in shimmering colours brighten the interior, while numerous works of art fill the building. The recently renovated organ takes us to another dimension. Still used as the setting for various events, the Collegiate Church is deeply marked by history and tradition. Upon entering the sanctuary of Waltrude, one is overcome by a feeling of serenity, and the spirituality within is immediately felt.
In the beginning, a sanctuary was built on the hill of the future city of Mons; it was later replaced by a Roman church and in the 15th century, the gothic Collegiate Church we admire today.
