Saint Ursula's church, next to the convent
One of Boxtel's stabilising factors was the large convent that was here from centuries ago. This religious place drew many believers to Boxtel and it provided as well care for the weak and education for the more wealthier inhabitants (like convents, abbeys and monastries often were representing). The complex is quite substantial and now-a-days houses the dance and music school of Boxtel and surroundings. The church is still in use as church and can be visited all days (outside special services).
The centre of Boxtel's religious life
In the centre the tower of Saint Petrus-church can hardly be missed. This church is dominating the view over the central houseblocks and shoppingstreets, though also often hidden behind walls and trees it tops then and again into view. The church itself is opened for public and has a ravishing interior of the average roman catholic church in Southern Netherlands.

Not that old, but of outstanding pictoreskness is the castle of "Stapelen" in the same-named park. Just from the villagecentre the castle recognises itself especially by the many merlons. It's graeful towers rise up in between the green wilowtrees that reflect in the surrounding canal. Inside the castle is a little cultural museum of the neighborhood.
