The Saint-Martin church dominates the village and is located on the hill of the walled cemetery.

It is a classic 18th century building . It was enlarged in 1904 with a neo-Romanesque tower on the façade, preceded by a monumental staircase , and in 1905 with a bedside sacristy, all designed by the Namur architect Édouard van Gelhuwe.

Inside, the flat roof of the nave is covered with a very rich and exceptional Regency style stucco decoration . In particular we see medallions of the Virgin and Child , the Dove of the Holy Spirit and Saint Martin . A Louis XV style cartouche from 1749 provides information about the date of origin of these stucco decorations. At the level of the choir there is a sunken frame vault decorated with Louis XVI motifs, with a central medallion decorated with a ciborium and four putti.
