Les Amis de l'Eglise de Mont - F. Fetus

Built in magnificent scenery, on a wooded spur of rock in the Meuse Hills that is an outcrop of the Argonne area, the 12th-century Notre-Dame church in Mont-devant-Sassey is one of Lorraine's most beautiful religious buildings. It is only a short distance from the Ardennes and the Gaume district.Built of freestone from 1127 onwards by the Canonesses of Andenne, it contains some Romanesque and Gothic treasures. Its octagonal roofed porch dates from the 13th century and is the oldest one in North-Eastern France to have retained its original statues. The iconography is remarkable. The pentagonal Romanesque chancel with its half-barrel vaulting is flanked by two apsidal chapels. The transept is short and the nave is built in a minimalist Gothic style. All these features are amazingly uniform. There is a beautiful open crypt with two rows of columns on the sides.Individual visitors and groups can visit the church on their own or with a guide (available on site) outside the usual opening dates. Advance booking required with the Amis de l'église de Mont.
