Romanesque churches in the “Voer”valley. The church is built in limestone from the local area, probably around 1200.
Important changes were made at the end of the 17th century to the style that was popular at the time, Baroque. Thus the large windows let in more light, the walls and ceilings plastered, the tower raised and at the base of this tower a new entrance was made allowing worshippers to enter the church on its western side. In the Romanesque choir there are remnants of old frescoes dating from the Middle Ages. Among the church’s treasures is a 15th century oak statue of Saint Paul and a gilded cross from the Baroque period.
A short 200metre walk from here leads you to the “Voer” which flows towards the park of Tervuren and onto Leuven.
