A really colorful church! I was amazed with it! Really worth a visit, for me. A Catholic Church, from the XIX century, in Neogotic style, dedicated to S. Francisco de Xavier. Before, it was a hidden church, until the freedom of religion for Catholics was introduced again. It was amplified and now it's a magnificent church!

A beautiful Catholic church in a strongly Protestant country. Not "worth a trip," but if you are in the Koningsplein/Bloemenmarkt area, it is worth a detour.

We stumbled across this church whilst walking around Amsterdam, we were drawn to the twin pointed towers, when we arrived and walked in we were stunned by the size of the church, it is huge but equally stunned by the amazing architecture all around the church. The church was built in 1883, the colourful stained glass windows are mesmorizing too,... More

A jewel box of a church. Beautiful stained glass windows, luminous wooden pews, confessional boxes, golden and sparkly, and most of all, colorfully painted walls. Free, and free audio tour available. A working Roman Catholic church. I am soooo glad that we happened to be staying near by, and wandered in. We spent at least an hour and a half... More
