Description

Description

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 appearance.


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.
