Saint Catherine church


It is an ancient chapel from the Augustinians' priory, founded in 1235. It is of the primary Gothic style and has a baroque altar from the end of the 16th Century. The building has a wonderful lectern that represents an eagle with srpread wings, made in 1370 by the silversmith school from Dinant. There are two recumbent statues that are very interesting: Thierry 1st from Houffalize's tombstone that has a great depth and Thierry 2's tombstone, that is sculpted in a blackish calcareous rock and that represents him lying on a blue-stone plinth dressed with his coat of mail and his armorial bearings
