Above all it is the environment around this little chapel of shale and stone that is enchanting: a green meadow enclosed by a little wall, a nearby stream, a bench to sit and contemplate the scenery and the village houses.
The chapel, dating from 1627, is topped by a small octagonal bell-turret with an iron cross at its summit. This itself carries a cross and key symbol which was probably that of the Saint Hubert abbey. There are some statues of saints inside. When the chapel is closed a small opening in the door allows one to view the interior.
From bell tower to bell tower in the heart of the Ardennes (car 2 route) - Several churches are built on the very site of very old oratories, of which they have preserved traces. Some were destroyed and then rebuilt, especially after the Religious Wars. Others, more recent, testify to the styles in vogue at the time of our (great-)grandparents....
From bell tower to bell tower in the heart of the Ardennes (hike 2) - Already occupied in prehistoric times, the forests of the Ardennes have seen the birth of prehistoric, Celtic, Gallo-Roman and then Christian places of worship. The remains of these millenary rites have become rare, but several sacred places, reused to this day, still retain their memory.
From bell tower to bell tower in the heart of the Ardennes (cycle route 1) - How lucky we are to have so many "building stones" in our basement. In this part of the Ardennes, it is mainly schist and sandstone that we find, or even a mixture of the two. The churches built in these rocks draw a very particular strength of character from them... A route for lovers of climbing.
