Église Saint-Pierre

Grâce-Hollogne, Belgium

The site where this church was built, was originally a Merovingian cemetery. According to archaeological sources, the Romanesque tower is the last remains of the first church. The building has been closed in 1999 because of the danger of collapsing. The church had suffered from dry rot and an earthquake in 1983.

Demolition

The church was protected in 1972, but in the 2010s it is in such a bad state they had to partly demolished it. The demolition of the church was only partial, the post-medieval part of the building is still protected. The Romanesque tower and turret are retained. These photos are taken a couple of months before the demolition.
