Gothic church

The cathedral is located in the most lively part of the city, with the greatest environment. This former collegiate church was founded in 966 and became a cathedral in 1802, replacing the great cathedral of Our Lady and St. Lambert which was destroyed during the revolution. It's a large Gothic building which was constructed after the original Church. There are 49 bells at the top of the tower. Don't forget to see the Christ of the Choir and the sixteenth century windows. The cathedral cloister has a valuable collection of treasures mostly from the old church.

The Romanesque founded in the 10th century by Bishop Éracle was replaced in the 13th century by a Gothic church. Its construction lasted until the 16th century. In the 19th century, it was profoundly modified and even rebuilt by the architect Jean-Charles Delsaux in neo-Gothic style. The large west tower completed by a high spire houses the chimes of St. Lambert Cathedral. The triple nave is lined with chapels, which is aligned to the transept. The cross-ribbed vaults are painted plants, animals and other figures. The movable decoration and treasure full of masterpieces of jewelry, sculpture and painting. The windows of the 16th century, the work of John of Cologne, are also remarkable.

L'édifice roman fondé au 10ème siècle par l'évêque Éracle fut remplacé au 13ème siècle par une église gothique. Son chantier se prolongea jusqu'au 16ème siècle. Au 19ème siècle, elle fut profondément modifiée et même reconstruite par l'architecte Jean-Charles Delsaux en style néogothique. La grosse tour occidentale terminée par une haute flèche abrite le carillon de la cathédrale Saint-Lambert. La triple nef est bordée de chapelles, sur lesquelles est aligné le transept. Les voûtes à croisée d'ogives sont peintes de végétaux, animaux et autres figures. La décoration mobilière et le trésor regorgent de chef-d'œuvres d'orfèvrerie, de sculpture et de peinture. Les vitraux du 16ème siècle, œuvre de Jean de Cologne, sont également remarquables.

Cathédrale saint paul

The Cathedral of St. Paul is located in the heart of Liège, near the Cathedral Square, not law Square neighborhood. It is a large building with its imposing architecture. Especially since its dark façade gives it a somewhat austere appearance. I particularly recommend, during your stay, visit the cathedral treasury is absolutely wonderful! We can observe many objects belonging to the cathedral for centuries, liturgical objects for most (vestments, chalices ... etc). It should also be noted that the treasure of the cathedral gives to see some beautiful reliquary, like Charles the Bold and the bust of Saint-Lambert.

Cathédrale saint paul

La cathédrale Saint-Paul se trouve au coeur de Liège, à proximité de la place de la Cathédrale, non loi du quartier du Carré.

Il s'agit d'un vaste édifice à l'architecture imposante. D'autant plus que sa facade sombre lui confère un aspect quelque peu austère.
Je vous recommande particulièrement, lors de votre passage, de visiter le trésor de la cathédrale qui est absolument merveilleux !

On peut y observer de nombreux objets qui appartiennent à la cathédrale depuis des siècles, objets liturgiques pour la plupart (chasubles, calices... etc). Il faut également préciser que le trésor de la cathédrale donne à voir quelques très beau reliquaire, comme celui de Charles le Téméraire et le buste de saint-Lambert.

Ancient monastery founded in 966 AD It became the cathedral in 1802. The top of the tower houses a carillon of 49 bells. In the cloister, the Treasury of the cathedral has an exceptional collection of works of art that come, in large part, from the ancient cathedral of Notre-Dame-et-Saint-Lambert

Antica collegiata fondata nel 966 d.C. E diventata cattedrale nel 1802. La cima della torre ospita un carillon di 49 campane. Nel chiostro, il Tesoro della cattedrale presenta un’eccezionale collezione di opere d’arte che provengono, in gran parte, dall’antica cattedrale Notre-Dame-et-Saint-Lambert
