Chapelle des Jésuites

  • The volume and colours of the Jesuit chapel stand out in the urban landscape. Its impressive size illustrates the importance of the Walloon Jesuit College, established in 1566, and more generally the role played by the town in education from the Renaissance to the Revolution. Built between 1615 and 1640 and restored between 2013 and 2016, this architectural gem now hosts exhibitions, concerts and seminars.
