Very beautiful and big. Enjoyed it a lot
Magnificent building with a fantastic spiritual atmosphere. Worth to spend some time here and see the paintings on the wall and take some peace with you from this place!
Was beautifully painted. Apparently you can have your wedding there too but the public will just walk in
Antiques market. Nice and busy. No wafel stand but lots of old stuff. Once a month. Going again soon
Beautiful authentic Cathedral. I will have my wedding in here just a couple of days later! Sooo exited!!!
