Church of St. Didier d’Asfeld

In 1680 the Count of Avaux-la-Ville (now Asfeld) wished to celebrate in his own way the Peace of Nijmegen, which consolidated the frontiers of the kingdom of France. He engaged a Flemish Dominican monk, François Romain, who had designed the Pont Royal in Paris, to build a church in an unparalleled architectural style. He more than succeeded! Saint-Didier d’Asfeld, with a shape that is close to that of a viola de gamba, was a challenge to contemporary architectural standards and tastes. The finest church in the French Ardennes – or at least the most astonishing.

The church of St. Didier d’Asfeld is the parish church of the city of Asfeld in the Ardennes department. It has been classified as a historical monument since May 3, 19132.

The painter Rostislas Lukin donated to the church an icon depicting Mary and the Apostles Peter and Paul.
