A week or so ago, I promised to share pictures of the inside of the Grote Kerk. So, it seemed like the perfect place to go on this Good Friday – and it’s official – this is my favorite spot in Breda. The architecture, the detail, the stained glass windows, the pipe organ (I could go on… and on) – will all leave you speechless. It’s hard to believe this church was built in 1410 and remains in pristine condition. A favorite, I’ll share with you at a later time, are the church bells – every hour, on the hour, the city is filled with a lovely melody that is sure to leave you smiling.
Even the floors are a site to see –
A site I could see a thousand times and still be in awe – absolutely love pipe organs –
Bible from 1660 –
While many of you (Americans) enjoyed Good Friday as a holiday, we in the Netherlands will have Monday as an extra day of rest – so, everyone wins with a three day weekend!
Until next time – hope you have a wonderful Easter filled with love, family and friends.
