Saint-Etienne Church

Saint-Etienne Church
© MT Pays de Marche & Nassogne

Recognised as the oldest Roman church in Belgium and listed in Wallonia's Major Heritage. Its sobriety intrigues and its splendour fascinates...

This remarkable building embodies an exceptional witness to the past. It is the only church to have preserved its dedicatory stone commemorating the consecration of the church on June 20th 1050. An already prestigious building, the church was remarkably enhanced by the addition of the stained-glass windows designed by Jean-Michel Folon, which depict the martyr of Saint-Etienne.

Church windows, created by Jean-Michel Folon, remind of the martyr of Saint-Etienne.

It also houses some famous works by Master Waha, a little-known sculptor but whose works arouse admiration and amazement.

An audiovisual presentation shows the testimony of Jean-Michel Folon on the manufacturing of church windows, as well as some commentaries on the major pieces of the church's heritage. Another presentation is dedicated to Master Waha's works.
