This basilica, in the center of Maastricht is a true jewel.
You’ll be amazed by the elegance and serenity. There are lots of details that are unique in the Netherlands.

Entering by way of a courtyard. While the current church dates from the 11 th century, theories believe it is significant old but there have been no archeological studies in the area.

Romanesque architecture is prevalent with small windows and large features. The organist was practicing the day we were there which added a true sense of medieval times.

The interior and art work were probably net interesting but due to the lighting it was difficult to see.

It is a nice place to experience and a break for the commercialism of the area.

We found the chapel while wondering the streets after dinner. Very beautiful. Bring some change to light a candle. Closed at 9 pm the day we were there.

Our choir sang an evening performance here in May.

Not sure how much is involved in the for fee tour. But we saw besides the church displays in the side corridors and items used for services including figures carried for processions.
