De Krijtberg

De Krijtberg

The Neo-Gothic De Krijtberg of Sint-Franciscus Xaveriuskerk replaced a clandestine Jesuit chapel in 1884. Its rich interior with stained glass, brightly painted walls and liberal use of gold is in stark contrast to the city's more austere Protestant churches.

This was the only church interior we saw in Amsterdam.
