Eglise Saint Martin - Bonsing

Source: Willem Vandenameele

This beautiful quarry limestone building is located in the center of the cemetery and consists of a small Romanesque tower to the west and a long volume with four bays.

The only mentioned element of the church, the tower, has three levels. Built in the 11th and 12th centuries, it has practically no opening on the first floor, apart from two visible slits on the north and south sides. The nave was remodeled in the first half of the 17th century , probably reusing part of the Romanesque nave. Between 1683 and 1685 the choir was rebuilt on the initiative of Priest Docquier, who died in 1691 and whose tombstone survives. In 1858-1859 the building was extended to the east on the site of the 17th-century presbytery and the orientation of the building was changed.

The tower is part of the protected heritage.
