We are here in the nave of the Holy Willibrordus Basilica, considered the most beautiful Gothic church in the Netherlands.
The church was built in the 15th century by architects Everaert Spoorwater and the Keldermans family (many family members were architects) who were also involved with the building of the Cathedral of Our Lady in Antwerp.
Originally it was a Roman Catholic church but during the 80 year war, it became protestant. Later, Napoleon changed it into partly protestant and Roman Catholic. In 1929 the church became fully Roman Catholic again when the catholic bought the nave from the protestant. A few years later, Pope Pius XI elevated the church to basilica.
