St. Bartholomew’s Collegiate Church (“Collégiale Saint-Barthélémy” in French) shows a strange mixture of styles. It was erected in the 11th and 12th century in Mosan Romanesque style, but was remodelled thoroughly in the 18th century. The twin towers were rebuilt in 1876. Still, with its original colours restored, St. Bartholomew’s looks appealing from the outside. The white-washed 18th century interior... More

I first visited St-Barthelemy 44 years ago. It was then a fascinating and historical building, but was gray and crumbling. It has been marvelously restored and is worth the visit and the minimal price of entry. The baptismal font on the backs of twelve oxen is itself worth a see.

Nice church but the reason to visit is for the ancient baptismal font. It is quite an interesting piece.

This church is nicely restored and it is certainly worth visiting even if you have to pay 4 Euros to see the baptismal font. The replica in the treasury of the cathedral does not come close to the original.

Not a classic gothic Catholic Church, a nice Cathedral, glorious Christmas service. Was very good to be there with local people at this special night.

Spent a few days at No 5 B&B, across the courtyard. Must visit to an enchanting medieval place of worship. Worth the fee.

Just across the square from the Musee Curtius this beautifully restored Romanesque church is not only worth a visit in its own right but has inside one of the glories of medieval sculpture in the form of huge decorated brass font. The people on the door were both friendly and informative when we visited, there were few people around at... More

The buildings looks nice from the outside, but the treasure is hidden inside a magnificent 12th century metallic baptistery font of exceptional quality.

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.
