The Church of the Sacred Heart and Our Lady of Lourdes is located on the heights of Liège in the Cointe district. It is part of the Interallied Memorial. It is often referred to as a basilica but it has never received this title. This popular confusion is certainly due to its imposing character and unusual style.
