Baptismal Font of the Collegiate Church of St Bartholomew
The church houses one of the universal masterpieces of Romanesque sculpture, considered to be one of the seven marvels of Belgium: a baptismal font in brass (1107-1118) originating from Notre-Dame-aux-Fonts, the former baptistery of the city. This church, formerly abutting the cathedral of Saint-Lambert, was destroyed with it at the end of the 18th century.
