Near river Moselle, this Gothic church's high towers are very impressive! The former building dates back to the 13th century, raised by Antoinist monks. It was extended in 1354.

First dedicated to saint Antoine, this church was finished in the 15th century.

One century later, Charles III of Lorraine founded a very famous university which was put in Jesuits care.

Those monks decided to alter the church in a most fashionable style.

Come here! You will see a statue, the Sepulchre, completed by a German sculptor.

Counts and countess of Bar were buried here.
