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.

Eglise De Saint-gilles Reviews & Ratings

  • I love this quite and peaceful place

  • Beautiful monument

  • Un lieu de prière et de quiétude . Étant croyant , c'est l'église que je fréquente le plus pour prier soit en français , en espagnol ou en portugais . On peut y assister à des chants de la part d'une congrégation qui nous renvoient quasiment à la dévotion originelle . En fermant les yeux , vous pouvez même y sentir la présence du Christ . Mais bon , Jésus est partout quand nous faisons le bien .

  • Messe dominicale en langue portugaise tous les dimanches matin...
