Eglise Saint Jean-Baptiste

THE ABANDONED CHURCH IN BELGIUM


This old church named ‘Eglise Saint Jean-Baptiste’ was built in 1882 by architect Eugène Halkin. The church got abandoned and is in a very bad state.

The church has some interesting religious art. Its characteristic cross is dated from 1875 and is 3.50 meter high. The wooden pulpit dates from 1898. The church organ is even older, dating from 1785.

The church got abandoned because of the neglect in maintenance. There is no money to restore it.

In summer 2015 many things were stolen from the church, like the organ pipes and the wood carvings of the altar. I took these photos of ‘Eglise Saint Jean-Baptiste’ in 2014.
