    On arrival at the main square of Brielle you see the historical museum there to lie with the Catharijne Church right behind. The Church is very impressive because of its size, although this actually was intended originally larger. It is possible to view inside the church if you're willing to pay 1 euro at the entrance. Once inside the Church very against and does not meet my expectations. See the pictures and judge for yourself.

    The Sint-Catharijnekerk is build in the 15-16th Century, it survived the Spanish attack on Brielle in the 1570s, and in here our national hero Willem of Oranje married to his third wife Charlotte of Bourbon in 1575.

    The Church is located in a restoration is yet to visit! Here which will be a compulsory entrance fee of € 1 per person taken into the restoration. From the Tower (318 steps and 57 meters), one has a great view! It is worth!

    The beautiful, never completed St. Catharijne Church, was built in late Gothic style, in the period 1417 Brabant to 1482. Only the three-aisled nave and the tower were built when realized, although the tower should have been much higher. Lack of money was (like so often) caused the construction stop. In the end it had a cross basilica, but transept (transept) and chorus are never built. In 1572 the sea beggars have destroyed or robbed the images (iconoclasm). As a result of the Reformation, it became a Protestant Church. In this church is Prince William of Orange on 12 June 1575 married to his third wife Charlotte of Bourbon. By 1759 to 1850 is the Tower of the Church has been in use as a lighthouse. In 1759, there is a lantern on the tower built, was a coal fire stoked. In 1833, a kerosene lamp with parabolic mirrors. The octagonal stone lantern is in 1895 of the Tower removed.

    I have nothing with faith but the Church is very beautiful. You can walk all the way up through a long flight of stairs.
