Lonely Planet review
This large Rhenish-style church has twin Saxon-style towers and a cream-and-cerise exterior that has been so well restored it looks almost like a film set. The church houses a famous 1118 baptismal font that’s one of the world’s most celebrated pieces of Mosan art. Probably created by Renier of Huy, the great brass bowl was rescued from a chapel of St-Lambert’s Cathedral when that cathedral was demolished in 1793. It rests on oxen figures and is adorned with five baptismal scenes, elaborately described in a video screened nearby. To glimpse the font for free, peer through the long, narrow slit window in the church’s western end.
