  • We were allowed to visit the Church for €1 pp and climb the tower. There was an exhibition. Fun to do

  • The Catharijne Church in Brielle is never completed and that is especially visible on the outside. The Church seems way too small for the Tower, which looks far too wide for the height. Inside you find yourself in a beautiful historical building, in which various objects and images (also in Windows) recall the history of Brielle. The tower is to climb and from the trans you have a beautiful view over the town and the surrounding area.

  • 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.
