Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk / Church of Our Lady, Maastricht: 34 reviews and 48 photos
I'm not really a church person but I do appreciate the historical relevance of a place's ecclesiastical buildings and the Church of Our Lady is a particularly interesting one. There has been a church on this site since the 4th century AD although the oldest parts of the current structure date from the 9th century. The building has been added to several times over the course of the last thousand or so years which when wandering around (outside and in) sort of traces the city's history.
Although this is a Catholic place of worship the church attracts a multi-denominational group of worshippers, as well as us tourists, and is dedicated to seafarers of all nationalities and creeds.
Address: Onze Lieve Vrouwenplein
Directions: In the old city just south of the St Servaas bridge.
