Prettiest church in Luik
Nov 2019
Although it is not the main church of Luik, this one is at least as pretty, but probably prettier than the St paul. Especially the roof is amazing. A very good place to enjoy piece and quietness.

A brief but charming review of the epic of old Liege 리에주의 역사가 깃든 멋진 성당
May 2019 • Family
How lucky enough to visit this Eglise St Jacques on Monday morning! Not so crowded, we had meet the historiographer in the church and he had the kindness and time to show us the double stairways, and to share the fascinating story about the old city! Children were so enchanted to listen about the old politicians' power game and thoughtful architects with skills and ideas. :) It was memorable and interesting in the St Jacques and we wished we had a little more time to explore. I am so grateful to the kind prof at the church. Sir, by your generosity opened our eyes how to enjoy and learn from the distant field trip.

월요일 아침, 리에주 대성당이 보수 공사로 문을 닫은 것 같아서 발길을 돌려 찾아간 야곱 성당 (쟈끄 또는 제임스 성당) 이었는데, 성당에서 아주 운 좋게 친절한 역사 해설가 선생님을 만나 훌륭한 견학을 했습니다. 과거에 베네치아와 비슷한 운하 도시로, 시의 중심가 섬에 이 성당을 지었다고요, 당시 두 명의 시장 (마치 로마 집정관 2인처럼) 이 동등한 권력을 행사할 수 있도록 하였는데 자존심이 상하지 않도록 두 개의 통로를 만들어 배려하였다고 하네요. 몇 차례 증 개축을 했고, 11세기 유적을 포함하고 있는 성당을 아직까지도 개보수 하면서 잘 사용하고 있는 것에 감탄하였고, 즐거운 배움의 시간이었습니다.

Imposing church

It worths a stroll in the church in order to admire the imposing architecture. Of course it is like the most of catholic churches.

Not worth a visit

May be due to renovations, but even when ready, I guess it is not really worth a visit. Same for most of the other churches

Beautiful church
Feb 2019 • Family
Like a couple of other churches in Liege, the St. Jacques is really worth a visit.

The stained glass and wood work are definetly a must see.

Too bad the outside was being renovated during my visit

Amazing church in the center of Liege
Jul 2018 • Couples
The St-Jacques church is an amazing church for its history and its decoration.
If you are in Liege you should book an hour to visit it. On Sunday usually there are free guided visits in the church but check the time before going.

The guides make this wonderful attraction an excellent one
Aug 2018 • Family
The volunteers that guide and advise visitors here really do make a wonderful attraction an excellent one. Their knowledge add another layer to your visit and really lift what would be an otherwise interesting visit. Even my ten your old son, who is not impressed with architecture or history, said it was "Epic!", very high praise indeed. There are signs and information boards so you know what you are actually looking at, there are organ festivals, and even on a bad day, a short visit here is a memorable one. But if you meet a good guide, as we did, WOW! We were taken around and shown some really interesting places that we'd have otherwise missed. Very enjoyable and the highlight of our visit to the area.

Like most churches in Liège Saint Jacques displays the various tume layers of its developments over the centuries, from the 10th C fortress church to the Baroque ornamentations.

a lacework in stone, with a fantastic colorful vault

Only a few minutes from the center, one of the most important churches in Liege. It is open only 10:00 - 12:00 every day. When I visited it was open and when I get in, a lady guide welcome me and she told me a few things about the church. She only speak French so I didn't understand and she gave me a printed guide in English. The church is amazing. In the apse you find stained glass windows from 1525. On the columns of the nave there are barock statues in wood painted white to imitate marble. In the back of the church the organ built in 1600 sits on a gothic roodscreen with the gallery of apostles. When I visited the church, the organ was playing, and I was lucky to listen to the amazing sound. The church is dedicated to St. James the Minor, but it has also a relic of St.James the major which was brought in the year 1056. Both relics are in the shrine of the St.James Chapel. The romanesque crypt and some other nearby remains can be visited on reservation. Not to be missed if you visit Liege.
