  • A visit well worth making. Great church to visit from the inside and beautiful exposition of items that were found on the attic.  more »
  • Historic and very impressive church, dating back all the way to the 11th century...located in the center of old Maastricht  more »
  • There’s a self-help tour that costs 4.50 Euro to get to the inside the main church. Make sure you get a pamphlet before entering the main church. It’s a great way to donate to the church and you’ll get to see the main chapel as well. It’s a win win situation. This basilica has this amazing strong church scent, a room with history slideshows and other valuable artifacts. It’s a beautiful cathedral.
  • Very beautiful. Candles are cheaper than in action. Really price worthy! :)
