On the hillsides between Ourthe and Amblève, slightly off the Nationale 30 Liège-Aywaille-Spa, you will be immediately seduced by discovering, in a green and protected area, a harmonious group of buildings made of ferruginous stone, being the former priory of the Canons of Saint-Augustin whose conventual church, built in 1701, became a parish church in 1803 and listed in 1948: the object of the visit. From afar, your attention will be immediately captured by the finesse and elegance of the three-bulb bell tower and its octagonal lantern. Very rare in our regions. On the forecourt, on the left, you can see the warm and welcoming limestone façade and, on the right, the very characteristic entrance to the cemetery, with its vaults with vertical flagstones. When you enter the church - which has been completely restored - you will be conquered by its cheerful atmosphere in which the brightness and whiteness of its walls and the golden touches of the decoration contribute to the atmosphere. The general style, especially the choir, is Baroque, while the nave has contrasting Louis XIV oak furniture and decoration. You will discover more particularly the 16th century theater, the exceptional Le Picard de Liège organ, a very beautiful pulpit of truth and several statues of the Del Cour School. Everything will be done to make your visit a peaceful and enriching moment of discovery. The quality of the baroque organ and the perfection of the acoustics make it a sought-after place for professional recordings and concerts.
