About St. Catherine's Church, Eindhoven
One of the most beautiful architectural wonders in Eindhoven is the Sint Catharinakerk or the Church of St. Catherine. It is dedicated to the saint from Alexandria. This church has been around since the 13th century. It was damaged in the several wars that shook Europe. The current structure was commissioned sometime in the 19th century. It is designed by Pierre Cuypers. The influence of French-Gothic architecture is easily visible in the design of the building. The two towers that are a part of the building are named Maria and David. A recent archaeological excavation led to the discovery of old bones, skeletons, household items and jewellery near the church. The Music Foundation regularly holds music concerts in the church. The building is now a National Cultural Monument.

Amazing building structure. False worship. Scary if you really know your Bible.
Beautiful architecture. Great workmanship in the stained glass windows. Quiet, peaceful vibe.
Gets a makeover during the GLOW festival. Not seen anything like this before!
