Founded between 1010 and 1015 outside the city’s walls, this old collegiate church, with its characteristic Rhine/Meuse architecture, was built in sandstone from the end of the 11th century (for the choir) to the final decades of the 12th century. Visit the church and admire some remarkable baroque furniture from Liège. Thanks to recent restoration measures, the interior of the westwork – with its remarkable galleries – has regained most of its original allure.
Saint-Barthélemy collegiate church is also the home of baptismal fonts of inestimable heritage value. Considered to be one of the seven wonders of Belgium, this masterpiece of Romanesque sculpture was made between 1107 in 1118, in brass. The baptismal fonts originate from Notre-Dame-aux-fonts church, the city’s former baptismal church. This church, once adjacent to Notre-Dame-et-Saint-Lambert cathedral, was destroyed along with the latter at the end of the 18th century.
