The first church on this location was built in the 13th century to serve the hamlet of Obbrusse. Destroyed in the 16th century, it was replaced by second church, which again suffered heavy damage in the bombardments of 1695. Restored and enlarged in the 19th century, the church, when completed, had an Eclectic architectural style. It has some nice stained glass windows.

Highlights:

  • A bell tower flanked by two side chapels.
  • Scenes from the life of St. Gilles carved on the portal.
  • An oak pulpit with six statues.
  • Romanesque style choir altar
  • Romanesque style chapels for the Virgin and Saint Gilles.
  • Frescoes of angels and saints by Arthur Van Gramberen.
  • An organ with the statue of King David.
