St Peter's Church

Between 1912 and 1914, the old parish church was demolished, except the tower. Architect Ernest Dieltjens designed a three-aisled cruciform basilica in neo-Gothic style that was built in its place.

The 48-metre tower (52 metres with cock) dates from the late 15th or early 16th century. It was built in a Gothic style characteristic of the region. It consists of six bays under a constricted spire. The corner buttresses and the use of white sandstone for the water cornices create a rejuvenating effect. The spire was completely renovated in 1980. In the tower, you can admire the old 'comme' and the 17th-century clock mechanism. The bells in the tower date from 1824 and 1950. The tower, the first building in Belgium, was protected as a monument in 1936. 

The church contains a wealth of impressive 17th-century works of art and silverware, which were transferred from the old church. In 1761, Louis II de la Haye built the church organ. In 1893, it was heavily modified. 

Every year, there is a procession to St Anthony's at the church during the week of 17 January. The holy abbot is revered as a patron saint for humans and animals.
