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.

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
