  • Interesting place. Other than expected. Mysterious and Puzzultural. Next to a closed church the place of memory of fallen soldiers.

  • In the District of Cointe, on the heights of Liège, is the Interallied Memorial which includes the religious building "Church of the Sacred Heart and Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes" and a tower as a civil building. The latter, with a height of 75 meters, art deco trend, is capped with a cylindrical coronation with successive gradients. During the first world war, given the opposition shown by the city of Liège to the enemy, it will be chosen in 1925 by the Allied Federation of veterans as a place to build an inter-Allied Memorial Monument financed by Allied countries. The construction of the ensemble ranged from 1928 to 1935 under the glass of the Antwerp architect Joseph Smolderen. The tour will be inaugurated on July 20, 1937 in the presence of King Leopold III. After the second world war, in 1949, Belgium became the owner of this tower which following the damage of the war will be restored from 1962 to 1968, followed by a new inauguration by King Baudouin 1st. The Church is unfortunately closed to the public and surrounded by barriers as its condition degrades. As for the Tower, it would be open only on the occasion of the heritage days. Outside, on the Esplanade, you can nevertheless discover several monuments and Memorial plaques offered in Liège by the Allied Nations: England, Russia, Greece, Italy.. (See detail in photo captions). This site is unique in Belgium because it gathers in the same enclosure a civil and religious building that pay tribute to the same cause. The Church, desacralised late 2010 and classified as heritage in 2011, has a separate page on T.A.
