- 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.

* Susteren / Zöstere, population: 7,400 - In 2003 Susteren and Echt merged to create the municipality of Echt-Susteren population: 32,200. Susteren is the birthplace of my great (x2) grandmother (1820) and great (x2) grandfather (1820) and his parents.
