In furnish there is a mix of styles-Romanesque and gothic, but thus purely externally gothic not French and not German, and such typical style of the valley of Maas. The later internal finishing of the flowerbed has already typical late Gothic vaults. As well as the Gothic portal dedicated to the Virgin Mary, where in front of the wooden statue of Our Lady exhibited candles and the prayer of sailors to Star of the Sea: honoring the Virgin Mary as a star of the sea is typical for port cities. In the interior decoration the motif of the upper gallery with columns clearly repeats the design of the chapel in Aachen. In general, the church, folded from a rough stone, looks like a fortress, rather gloomy (especially under the grey Dutch Sky), but the cathedral is interesting, quite authentic, and it is definitely worth visiting.
Maybe the most beautiful cathedral in the Netherlands dedicated to the Holy virgin Mary. Make sure you light at candle before you sit down on one of the many terraces in front of the cathedral.
Beautiful, peaceful and great place to sit to thing and pray. You can light candles that can be bought at the place, which is really good for someone's who find the place "by accident" like it was our case. Our Lady's image is hypnotizing. Definitely going back when in town.
