  • Spotting the bell tower of Saint Elisabeth’s from Grand Place we went to take a closer look at the church. Its style is mixed, because most of the original gothic church, including the bell tower...

  • A large church in the centre of Mons, but not as impressive or large as the St Waltrudis church. Can also use a lick of paint, and not too many details to see. From the outside especially the tower...

  • The Eglise Sainte-Elisabeth de Mons is a church not far from the Grand Place of Mons. The church is a mixture of Gothic, Romanesque and Baroque as you’d expect from a church that’s been standing since the early 16th century and no doubt undergone restoration. Especially as the church was gutted by a fire in the 1715 and inside, you can see where the original Gothic structures withstood the fire and what had to be rebuilt, which is the majority. Not much of the original building has been restored and there’s only a few stained glass windows, the rest are plain glass. The church reputedly has a reliquary holding the relics of Saint George, which is housed in one of the chapels. Unless you’re extremely pious with a need to see relics and reliquaries of saints, I’d only visit the church if you have time to spare. There’s also a statue of Leopold II outside the south west corner of the church.
  • Nice church with a wooden art piece in front of it.
