Unfortunately church was closed at the time we visited Liege, so we could only watch the building from outside. Although it already needs some maintenance it still looks wonderful and magnificent. I also admired beautiful forged fences along the church and lovely well maintained park next to it.

Lots of work being done on the outside but don't let that put you off going inside. The colours on the stain glass windows are stunning especially on a sunny day.

This huge, very well crafted church hosts a lot of relics and other religious items. It is easily accessible by bus, and there are many parking lots around. Moreover, it is only a few minutes of walk from the town center and all its activities

This is one of the churches you should visit if you have the time and are interested in that particular architecture and environment. It is well preserved, nice to look at and discover details, and yes it's free.

I like Church Buildings that have more than a nod to what Christianity is all about. To that end I was delighted with the exhibition which was on display here, with various Bible passages and scenes providing the artists with their inspiration. The bright sunshine and simple high level yellow windows cast fabulous shades across the floor and seats.

I really liked the use of color in the interior. The red, white and blue touches on the ribbed ceiling reminded me of a Scots tartan, and the blue color around the organ - very blue, and attractive. I've come across several cathedrals now that have statues attached to the vertical pillars, but here the statues continue on around the... More

Lots of light, fabulous painted stone ceiling. Best of all though, there are two helical stone staircases - never seen that before - they are truly a work of art. The entry way to the cathedral has the ribbed vaults but made with irregular stone rather than brick. Fabulous craftsmanship.
