The chapel, to be found within a small enclosure, is located on Avenue Kennedy in the Brequereque neighbourhood. The current building was erected between 1859 and 1860 and includes many features made by artists from England such as the Holy Chapel which conveys symbolism of a casket holding a precious relic and of members of a hunt receiving this holy donation.  Tradition relates that the chapel was built on the exact site where Ida of Lorraine, countess of Boulogne received the casket holding holy blood sent from Jerusalem by her son, Godefroy de Bouillon. This event is represented on the tympanum above the entrance portal.


Open on the first saturday of the month between 15-19h only.
