The collegiate church of St. Bartholomew
was founded between 1010 and 1015 outside the city walls. It
boasts of a characteristic Rheno-Mosan architectural style. It was
built in greywacke, in the period from the end of the 11th century
(choir) until the last decades of the 12th century. Remarkable
Liège Baroque furniture. The interior of the East wing is
exceptional in its galleries and has partly recovered its original
The baptismal font
The church houses one of the universal masterpieces of
Romanesque sculpture, considered to be one of the seven marvels of
Belgium: a baptismal font in brass (1107-1118) originating from
Notre-Dame-aux-Fonts, the former baptistery of the city. This
church, formerly abutting the cathedral of Saint-Lambert, was
destroyed with it at the end of the 18th century.
