    During the war between Charles V and François I, Hargnies had for defense only the massive tower of his church: the governor of Charlemont received the order on June 15, 1558 to place a small garrison there.
    During the war between France and Spain in 1635, the church of Hargnies resumed its role as a fortress, and in 1640 a detachment of French troops, occupied at the siege of Charlemont, set fire to it.
    As a result, and in view of its characteristics, the church of Saint-Lambert would have been rebuilt in the middle of the 17th century but the interior would have been rebuilt in the 19th century.

    Good to know:
    If, for security reasons, the church is not permanently open to the public, it is nevertheless accessible upon request.
    Whether you are in a group or with your family, you just have to contact the secretary of the town hall at 03 24 41 61 17 : tel:03 24 41 61 17 , who will propose you a guided tour with a member of the association « Patrimoine d'Hargnies ». (Reservation 24h / 48h in advance).
    The average duration of the visit is one hour and free.
