Chapelle Notre-Dame du Marché


Chapelle Notre-Dame-du-Marché


This listed chapel with impressive proportions and dedicated to the virgin Mary was consecrated in 1353. It resulted from the residents’ need to have a place of worship within the town walls.

At a height of 27 metres it towers over the Grand’Place in Jodoigne. It is made from Gobertange stone which makes it bright and has a remarkable spiral steeple.

It was restored between 2008 and 2011. Today it is also used for non-religious purposes such as exhibitions by the Jodoigne Cultural Centre as well as a mass on Thursday mornings.

There are also interesting items in an adjoining room such as recumbent statues of Wynand de Glimes, the viscount of Jodoigne, and his wife Michelle d’Yedeghem.
