quite amazing!

a gem not to be missed! Especially the 12th century baptistry, but the church is beautiful and special outside and inside. It worth the fee.

To say Liege only has the the impressive train station is definitely ans understatement. its city is compact and delightful. Eglise St.barthelemy is one of Belgium wonders and definitely worth a visit.

Forget the unfriendly, slightly arrogant reception you might get at the entrance counter (yes you have to pay to get in and it's worth every cent). Immediately head for the famous 12th Century Baptistry. Of the 7 wonders of Belgium, this is the one I personally like most. It is the oldest and a marvel of harmony.

Senior discount is avilable. There is explanation paper for foreign tourists, and we got Japanese one. The tresure of the church, the Font of St. Bathelemy, is displayed at the best place in the church.

Both outside and inside of this church were beautiful, especially, I was impressed with the white based walls inside the church. The Baptismal font also beautiful and I could see two missing blonde cows under the blonde cup. I watched the video in English in the church, which showed the church before and after the recent refurbishment and was interesting... More

One of the reasons I went to Liège was to see the beautiful 12th century font in this church. It is cast in bronze and was the work of a superlative craftsman - more than that, of an artist who produced a work of classical realism that was very unusual in its day. And very beautiful.

This is the most interesting church in Liège. It has been carefully renovated during years with great success. You will be stricken by its white and red outside, with the two towers that show rhomboidal roof in Germanic style. The inside deserves a visit. The main piece is the famous 'fonds baptismaux' which are unique in the world.

This church is next to the Curtius Museum. It is famous for its beautiful font, but the rest of the building is also worth seeing. The exterior looks like a German Rhine Valley church, but the interior is more Central European Baroque. Definitely worth dropping in if you are visiting the Curtius Museum.
