Saint-Lambert's church

Sensenruth
B-6832 Sensenruth (Bouillon)

The dead's way that goes from Bouillon on reminds that at at the Middle Ages, the inhabitants of Bouillon inhumated their dead there. According to the History, and it is likely, Godefroid of Bouillon would have given there all what he had, among which his castle to the Bishop-prince of Liège. "A remere", which means with the possibility to buy it back.
This church is of Romanesque style, it dates back to the 9th century and it was the only parish curuch of the area of Bouillon during a very long time. It subished various changes in 1699. Its choir dates back to the 16th century.
In a wall, there is still the head of a pagan divinity. The Virgin and Saint John are represented at the foot of Christ on the cross, on a window. We can also mention the Baptismal fonts of which only the quadrangular basis made in carboniferous calcary is still left (12th century).
