St.Maurice's Church

Built in the 15C for the Dominicans, this church is a regional landmark because of its hanging roof. The very wide Gothic nave is characteristic of preaching orders. The side chapels are adorned with the coats of arms of guilds. On the pillar to the right and in front of the pulpit is a fresco of the Assumption. On the left of the chancel, there is the beautiful Descent of the Cross by P. Pourbus the Elder and a 15C mural depicting the dead body of Philibert de Monthouz surrounded by ten weeping mourners.
