Ortho is an ancient village which has played a major role in the area for a long time.
The square church tower dating from 1671 stands out even at night thanks to its lighting. In disrepair in 1901, it was rebuilt in 1908.The church surroundings are very pleasant.
The whitewashed interior has some 14th century gothic fonts and several statues and statuettes of saints. The choir’s stained glass window depicts the patrons of the parish, Sainte Anne and Saint Rémy.
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.
