“living the history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The church has not only a great architecture, but it embeds so much history... every step you make inside the church is a journey in time, to unknown moments of glory, or sadness, or dispare.

“Most beautifull church in Holland”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

I visited this church several times, last time during Cultural Night in Breda with beautifull performances and light shows, climbing the steps and watching the few over the city, the church bells during the day times are like music

“Breda - Gothic church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

One of the most beautiful gothic churches in The Netherlands.
From the tower you have a very nice view over the city.

“Great church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Living in the neighbourhood of this church since my early youth I never really took a look at this church. In the meantime I really admire this Gothic church with its rich history and very nice tower. Just splendid in nice surroundings.

“Truly suggestive architecture work”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

The first thing I did in Breda, rent a classic bike at the train station and start cycling throughout the streets of the city in a beautiful and sunny day.
I ended up in the historic center, after left the bike somewhere I ventured strolling around, impossible to miss it, this beautiful Gothic church with its height above the city, a truly impressive work and artistically significant.
As I said impossible to miss it and definitely the unique atmosphere around it with the presence of the market and stalls all over makes it so beautiful.
