This church used to be the place where members of the house of Orange got buried. Beautiful building and sights from the top.

What an amazing church! Free entry, with a brochure to guide you through the various stages of the church, with a video explaining the reign over the years. An absolutely beautiful work of art, and well worth your time. Donations are appreciated.

It's hard to not see this church when you are in Breda. From the outside it's a beautiful building! The inside is nice too with beautiful paintings on the ceiling.
