Eglise Paroissiale Notre-Dame

THE ABANDONED CHURCH IN BELGIUM


The ‘Eglise Paroissiale Notre-Dame’ was built in 1877 by architect Emile Coulon. It was built on the foundations of a much older Roman church that burned down.

The church in Orp-Jauche, was abandoned in 2005 and it became the playground for archaeologists. When searching for the old foundations they found five graves. They could date from the thirteenth century.

The church will be demolished soon to reveal the hidden history underground. The church will not be entirely demolished, the choir and sacristy, which dates from the thirteenth century, will be saved and become a chapel. I took these photos of ‘Eglise Paroissiale Notre-Dame’ in 2014.
