The paintings (by Jan Dunselman) in this church were remarkable. The scultures (by Elisee van den Bossche) were breathtaking. A must see if you love to be mezmerised by architecture from the late 1800's. It is free to visit, but, please donate a little.

The largest Catholic church in Amsterdam, which is currently operating. Relatively new from the end of the 19th century, it is located near the railway station.

St. Nicholas Basilica is across from the Centraal Station in Amsterdam. It is only a block from our hotel, Mauro Mansion. It is an ornate building and is very beautiful.

Attended mass at the Basilica of Saint Nicholas, located in the Old Centre area of Amsterdam, Netherlands. The mass was like the “high masses” I attended growing up including choir responses and incensing the altar. While the priests spoke in their native tongue, a paper...More

The largest church in Amsterdam. Well worth your time- it is FREE, and the stained glass is absolutely beautiful. It is walking distance from the Central station in Amsterdam.

When Catholics were finally allowed to worship freely (instead of in the hidden churches), a new church was built and finally consecrated in 1887. It is the city's primary Roman Catholic Church. Beautiful outside, and lavishly deocrated inside with red & white marble, stained glass...More

It’s one first historical building to see when you get off train 🚂 and leave railway station Centraal. Roman basilica is architecturally wonderful from inside and outside. Facing Amsterdam Centraal and neighbouring with canals with sightseeing boats 🚣‍♂️

Visited the Basilica close to Centraal Station. Incredible artwork inside of ‘stations of the cross’, huge ornate and impressive ceilings with wonderful stained glass windows. All in all, well worth stopping by.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
