  Rising almost 100 mtr high: Onze Lieve Vrouwe
by Pavlik_NL
 
 

From the old Onze Lieve Vrouwe church only the tower remains. This might be called a miracle as it's the tower that is huge and most fragile from the complex. The chapel is gone and the tower, that symbolises the holy maid Mary with as cornertower the child Jezus, is almost a hundred meters high. It was built from 1444 until 1500. A story of a miraculous Maria-statue surrounds the tower. Furthermore it is seen as the kadastral middelpoint of the Netherlands.
