The Luxembourg Ardennes Sights

Eglise St-Laurent

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Fodor's Review

In the center of the pedestrian zone, the Eglise St-Laurent, a small, ancient Romanesque church, has portions dating from the 5th century. It was first built over the foundations of a Roman temple, the older parts functioning as a cemetery. In 1961, that lower section was uncovered and with it about 30 Merovingian sarcophagi, many of them containing intact skeletons. Since 1978, the cemetery has been restored and open to the public. Some of the ancient foundations of the

church can be seen through a grate in the nave; you may enter the crypt by an exterior door on the right of the building.
