Eglise Saint Remacle à Opont

The church of Opont


B-6852 Opont
Its church, devoted to Saint Remacle, is a listed historic site and deserves to be seen.

The building, constructed at the end of the XVII century and beginning of the XVIII, is single-nave over two architectural spans, composed of rough sandstone, with a three sided apse. The slate-grey bell tower is square with an octagonal steeple, with two sides and the entrance is sheltered by a porch with an arched gate. The altars from the XVIII century are made of wood, partially marbled and with gold decoration. The statue of Saint Remacle is polychrome and sculpted from wood from the XVII century. The baptismal fonts hold coats of arms believed to be from the XV century.
