To be clear: the church is not a major tourist attraction. Yes, it has some links to Waterloo 1815. If you are visiting the Wellington Museum, it makes a lot of sense to check out this church too. That being said, it is a nice...More

This little church is full of memorials to the fallen at the battle of Waterloo. It is free to go in although we left a bit in the collection box. Worth a visit.

Within this church there are many stones commemmorating officers who fell in the battle of Waterloo. It seems to me that such commemmorations took off in Napoleonic times, probably as a result of the introduction of conscription, instead of relying on mercenaries.

The eglise St Joseph is a church that was built behind a Napoleonic monument, giving it its special feature, and that eye catching (but just a little) greek temple style entrance. If you have any reason to stop in Waterloo town (and manage to find...More
