Stiftkerk

- a.k.a. Sint Amelbergabasiliek

In 714 a monastery was constructed on this site. It was destroyed by the Normans in 882 to be replaced by a convent in 891. Sometime in the 11th century the convent was destroyed by fire and rebuilt. The busy architect P.J.H. Cuypers (1827-1921) replaced a single tower and two shorter ones with the symetric two towers in 1890.
