Very nice piece of art in the middle of the fruit tree-area! Must be amazing when all the trees are florishing! Recommended!

Nice architecture. Superb view of the valley through the church. Good place to spend evening. Remember that you can't go there by car. You need to walk a bit.

We visited this unique church last year with our granddaughter and Belgian friends. This is a site we would never have known about if not for our friends. Just a lovely area of Belgium to visit. Nice place for a walk.

This is just an artwork and not really the size of a church. As such people cannot really "sit" in the church. It is accessible to the public but actually on private ground. So consent to use the area may be difficult.
