Sint Jan in Eremo a famer area, but a very quiet place.

The single-aisled church has an interior in Baroque and Rococo style. The rococo stucco, for example, dates from 1774. The high altar is a portico altar made of wood painted in marble motif. It was made by Hendrik Hagheman and dates from 1699. It contains a painting depicting Mary with child. The tabernacle is from the end of the 18th century.
The communion rail by Hendrik Hagheman (1704) has three pilasters in the middle part with allegorical representations of faith, hope and love. The pulpit from 1699 is also by Hagheman. The female figure under the bowl is an allegory of faith. On the bowl are scenes related to the life of John the Baptist. Three panels have been placed on the sounding board depicting Mary with Child, Saint Joseph and Saint Janneke. One of the confessional seats, with decorations such as bunches of fruit and flowers, a squirrel and a snake. The other confessional, which contains a medallion representing Saint Peter, was made in 1742 by Pieter van Herreweghe.
Under the organ are five 18th-century paintings, the middle one depicts Christ as Salvator Mundi and also shows the coat of arms and pedigree of Father Van den Foreeste. To the left and right are paintings depicting the four evangelists.
The parish has a monstrance from 1725 and a silver reliquary (1775-1776) of Saint John. Both were made by Pieter De Thieu.
