Saint-Hadelin

Builtin in the 11th century by the disciples of Saint-Hadelin-de-Celles, this imposing collegiate church is one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture.
Perfectly preserved, the church is inseparable from the hermitage perched a few tens of meters higher.

Inside, besides the freshness more than welcome, a crypt of the 9th century and furniture ranging from the 12th to the 19th century.
In short, a refreshing back in History on this beautiful day of June.

The interior all in simplicity, characteristic of the first Romanesque age.

The tower had a defensive vocation, hence its imposing appearance.

Very close to the church, the path leading to the hermitage.

A restoration a little too radical has made disappear forever for the significance of these steles.
