We stopped in this small church during our walking tour of this town and weren't very impressed by its architecture or interior decorations

Entering this church and remembering how every sailor and also Jan Peter Coen him self pray here before the cruise the ocean to find new land is very touching. This is humble church for world explorer. The design and the history behind is very nice and still well kept

I've never seen a clock like the one outside the church. The way they hang the clock, it's an eye-catcher. The chucrch self was not open when we're there, on sunday afternoon. So, we passed the church and took some pictures.

Facade speaks of its antiquity, so my curiosity was ignited. I sent an email if we can to see the place. Graciously answered. Once inside, what a wow. High ceilings. Antique decors.The old organ on the wall lends beautifully as a background decor for any occasion. Enough space for table arrangement for at least 70 persons. Sound system is available.... More

It took us a few minutes to find the opening into this church. . . as it is through another building. It's worth a peek as it is serene and celebrates the sailing history of the region.

It's pretty much your typical old church found in Europe. It's worth a peek inside. This is a lovely town to wander around.
