Collégiale Notre-Dame et Saint-Domitien/Notre Dame Collegiate Church of Huy

Notre Dame Collegiate Church of Huy

I’ve seen a vague image of a part of the roof of the Collégiale Notre-Dame et Saint-Domitien in Huy in an old issue in French and immediately, without knowing anything about this edifice (I still don’t know much about it) I decided to visit it someday. So, my way back from the Modave Castle was such a brief occasion that I couldn’t miss. It was a really brief occasion, but at least I managed to visit it.

The collegiate church was built between 1311 and 1536 in the Mosan Gothic style.

What I know about it is that it is an extremely rich temple with its crypt with 4 reliquaries and other various works of art.

The high windows of the choir remind me a bit of the Aachen Cathedral.

The rest you can see by yourself.
