Church of Our Lady

Social media sharing

full, this church is called the Our Lady of Assistance of Christians Church. It was built in the mid 19th century, which explains the eclectic neoroman style. The graceful tower, crowned with a gilded Maria statue, gives the church the allure of a cathedral. It can be admired from a great distance.

The Church of Our Lady is known as the country's first church to be polychromed entirely: it is ornated with colourful murals.

The church's spire is 50 metres high and the gilded Maria statue is even 6 metres higher. The statue, known locally as 'Miet Vergult', has already been removed for renovation twice. Since 2014, a couple of peregrine falcons use the tower of the church to breed. With succes. Through a number of webcams, you can even follow their experiences online.
