Bon-Secours

Bon-Secours is a village located in Belgium, direct on the border with France and the village of Condé-sur-l’Escaut. The main feature of the town is the Basilique Notre-Dame de Bonsecours (Basilica of Our Lady of Refuge) which is right on the border.  It is the first church in France to be built in the Gothic Revival style. The church is richly decorated, with the windows, sculptures and other elements often carrying the name or coat of arms of a donor.

The border crosses streets and goes between buildings in the town. The first 2 buildings in Belgium being a betting shop and the church.
