The inside of the church is amazing, especially the ceiling and wood carving along both side walls. Of all the churches we visited in Namur, this is the one I remember most.

Good looking church, centrally situated in the old town, with reception by very friendly and informative host. Pretty confession booths done in dark wood, line the outer walls. Candles can be had for 1 EUR a piece. Wonderful spot for some solemn introspection and cooling...More
