I love the atmosphere of this old church and the fact that there are always people praying at the statue of the Holy Mary and burning candles. I have visited the museum with the church treasures once and I liked it a lot.

This is a massive building with no windows and looks like a fortress. Completely dark inside but lit with several candles which you can see from the entrance.

Went here to light two candles for my grandparents. Really pretty church with a LOT of history. Don't forget to go into the church after looking at the candle area.

Love the basilisk. Special feeling. Always buy a candle (small €0,50, large €0,90). But I noticed that the candles only burn for 2/3! (see also picture; all candles stop at the same level.) You can't light them up anymore, I tried!

Nice historical building, one of the tourist spots in Maastricht. Didn't went in, just admire the building from exterior.

The home of “Sterre der Zee” many local come here to find comfort while lighting a candle. At the square you need to sit down and enjoy a drink. What an atmosphere.
