Saint Gery Church

As interesting as the Cathedral with Rubens painting and Marsy's jube, it has been remarkably restored a couple of years ago.

A beautiful church which houses the wonderful “Entombment” by Rubens (1616) and a remarkable polychrome marble jube (1635), sculpted by Jaspart Marsy which is now the organ loft.

 

Founded in the 6th century, it is the oldest church of the town.

It became the Saint-Aubert abbey-church in the 11th century.

Rebuilt between 1697 and 1745, it illustrates two traditional types of architecture: Dutch Baroque and French Classicism.

At the transept crossing, a canopy in blue stone is the only one of this kind.

During the Revolution, the church was saved from destruction as it was used to store the clergy’s seized goods.

 

At the entrance, a small flyer is available in english and will give you more details.
