Saint Peter’s church carries the markings of different eras. The first altar, the remarkable baptismal fonts made from chalk from the river Meuse and the massive tower are products of Roman art. The other parts of the building can be identified with the flourishing Gothic period. Saint Peter’s church is worthy of note for its admirable multicolored ceiling rafters, which is presumed to have been painted by a local artist in 1536.
The church was restored on many occasions, notably after the 1940-1945 war. Another point to note is that the building has a very beautiful “crown of light” (16th century) and an impressive pulpit, work of Jean-Georges Scholtus, born in Bastogne, who was the greatest sculptor of Luxembourg in the 18th century.

An elaborate pulpit designed by Georges Scholtus - see above
We lit the candles here in the shrine for Granddad.
The ceiling is painted beautifully and is amazing this has survived almost 500 years!
This blog post was about remembering my Granddad who I miss very much, I loved his lovely smile and he was such a happy person.
