St Ursmer Collegiate Church

This hilltop collegiate church, the oldest church in Belgium, dates back to Carolingian days. It was enlarged in the 11C, so the chancel and crypt are Romanesque. Its porch and west tower are Mosan style. The tower above the transept crossing was added in the 19C. The crypt houses the tombs of St Ursmar and St Ermin.
