See the basilica of Meerssen, one of the most impressive Gothic churches of The Netherlands! This church once belonged to a small but important monastery but has been used as a parish church for a long time now. It makes a very balanced impression, but that is largely due to three traves added to the west in the 1930's. Once the church had a tower, but that seems hard to imagine today. The church is simply so perfect that it doesn't need a tower! The honorary title of Basilica Minor was granted by Pope Pius XI in 1938.
The rest of the town is quite nice too, with several more interesting buildings, including a small protestant church, a gift from the Belgian government in the 1830's, when Limburg was part of Belgium. Nice place to spend a couple of hours.
