This very old Romanesque church from the 10th or 11th century is a noteworthy building which has been modified over the centuries.
Most astonishing on the outside is the fortified tower built in the 13th century capped with a palisade, a wooden construction from which it was possible to fire on attackers. The building is what one calls a church-hall where the central nave and the two side naves are of the same height. The porch and its gate are in black marble from Theux.
Inside the ceiling panels painted in 1630 depict different saints.

Square tower, exceptionally situated northwards. The top is decorated with protruding tower enclosures, a construction that makes it possible to shoot at the attackers. Only two examples in Belgium: Theux and Bastogne.

The left side chapel : last judgement (1698)
