If You have any interests in religion, buildings or You are otherwise a history-buff, this is a must-see! How one man with a dream can make things come true. Superb. Good guide. Highly recommended.

Did not go inside, but outside really beautiful. Looks like a building you should find in a big city.

Somewhere that my wife and I have been eager to get to for many years. Aside from the family history here, we enjoyed the scale and size of the Church. The climb to the top viewing area was worth the minor effort.

A less than imposing building, but enter into a world of beauty! Built in the late 1800's, it resembles St Peter's Basilica in Rome. You can climb the stairs up to the dome and get a unique perspective from above. Such beauty in a small...More

It is quite exquisite and totally unexpected here. A miniature St Peter's in rural Netherlands, we came by boat to Oudenbosch and followed the dome for miles!

Astonishing. In the small village of Oudenbosch you will find the H.H. Agatha en Barbara basilica which is a smaller copy of St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City. This Roman Catholic church is beautiful decorated. A must see when you are in town.

I was surprised to see such grandiose architecture à la Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome but all done with a surprisingly good trompe l’œil which is to say that what looks like marble might or is simply skillful painting on columns and walls. It takes...More
