The Romanesque church of Saint-Martin
The church of Tohogne was undeniably built on a Gallo-Roman and Frankish site, in a remarkable grid pattern in the centre of the village. Already in the 7th century, the village was a high place of Christian religion thanks to its first oratory. Its primitive parish was considerable: it covered what later became the Land of Durbuy (including Grandmenil, Wéris, Erezée and Durbuy). As a rural parish church, the plan of the church of Saint Martin reflects the essential characteristics of its style: the three naves are set between a lower choir to the east and a higher tower to the west. The three naves are set between a lower choir in the east and a higher tower in the west. This is the largest Romanesque church in Luxembourg (33 m x 15 m). The walls of the high nave are pierced on each side by five round-headed windows. Their keystones take us back to the 11th century! Inside, you can admire a unique 14th-century baptismal font, a calvary from the Mosan school, also dating from the 14th century, extensive wall paintings from the 16th and 17th centuries, a Louis XIV-style pulpit of truth, attractive statuary in the apses and a monumental Baroque high altar. The church underwent a major restoration in 1975.
