This church is a briliant example of neo-gothic/gothic revival style, popular in the 1880-1900. For those used to white, sombre, strict-lined church design, it will come as an explosion of colours, patterns, mosaics and forms - really beautiful!

I usually consider Catholic churches to be far too gaudy but this one, although every inch is decorated, is fantastic! There are some absolutely stunning details. I particularly liked our guide's explanation of the font's location. The unbaptised baby is brought into a small area at the side of the door; baptised, then brought through a different door into the church proper.

Working holiday. Re slated the roof back in 1996 on this beautiful church. Stunning, must see. Best church I've seen in The Netherlands.

Don't let its unassuming facade fool you; this church is absolutely breathtaking inside. From the detailed woodwork and stained class to the painted stations of the cross and ornately painted walls, this church is a must see. It's so tranquil inside; it's nice to just sit and look up at the ceiling. Historically, Utrecht was the center of the catholic church until the Protestants rolled in and destroyed the vast majority of it. This church was built in 1875, well after the Protestant Reformation. I think it's the most beautiful church in Utrecht, if not the whole of the Netherlands, and I have seen many. Highly recommend.

You wouldn't expect a catholic church to be built in such a grand style in Utrecht, in the Netherlands. This after all - is majority protestant in the lands "above the river", and yet, here we are.. I lived in the neighbourhood of Utrecht for years, and never knew. It was - as are all catholic churches - "well hidden in plain view". Such churches were also called "Schuilkerken" - or hidden churches. They were designed to look like villas on the outside, but were churches on the inside.. So too this church. It's been recently purchased by a French order, and mass is celebrated in the traditional latin. So if you'd like to see mass as it used to be celebrated in the 14th century, head down here. its quite an experience
