A very nice Roman Catholic church, worth seeing. It has strict opening hours. Nice glass paintings and decorations. Located in the center of the town.

Much later structure than the Nieuwe kerk but still with a gothic heritage. Only open 3 days a week so pick your visiting times to admire the interior which is similar to many catholic cathedrals of this era

Many of this kind of churches have been demolished over the last decades, but fortunately this one remains and has been preserved very well. It has beautiful decorations on the inside and original ornaments.

This church is much smaller than the 'Nieuwe Kerk' (new church) at the market square, but its decorations are exquisite. A pity that the church doesn't (yet) open its doors more frequently.

We were intending to go to Sunday Mass here but found a church close to our hotel. We went later in the day and were impressed with how nice it was inside.

We attended mass during Easter weekend. The architecture was inspiring with high ceilings, colorful etchings and paintings and can be described as Neo Gothic! The style is more ornate delicately woven in yellow, red and gold paints. The church is Roman Catholic with specialized Dutch/English...More

Compared to the austerity of the old Delft churches, this is a riot of colour and imagination - catholic hedonism poking out its tongue at reformation restraint. Only seems to be open Thursdays and Saturdays and worth planning a visit to Delft on those days...More

A tranquil place in the hart of Delft. A place to worship, but also to reflect. The inside, the silence, the organ, the mural painting, the glass-stained windows. Its a piece of heaven on earth
