  • 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.

  • When it began in the 17th century to the building of the Ruggflat found the town people that they could not stay behind. So this flat was built. When this flat in 1987 finally was completed was also below a kosma and video land opened as at the Ruggeflat. The sea beggars didn't like movies and drunk rather euroshopper pils so were these stores closed in 1990. There was a Barber, but who was also away quickly. "Real men don't go to the Barber", is a phrase which was much used in that time. There were already ten hundred Barber shops on the village. So no-one misses this hair.
