About Basilica of St. Nicholas

In the Old Centre district of Amsterdam lies the Basilica of Saint Nicholas, the city's most prominent Catholic church. It was the oldest part of city’s defence works and was thus officially addressed as St. Nicholas inside the Walls. The design of the church is influenced by several revival styles out of which Neo-Baroque and neo-Renaissance are the most famous ones. The exteriors of this attraction have two towers on the sides between which lies a rose window. A bas-relief depicting Christ and the four Evangelists forms the center of this window. The basis of the ground plan is the scheme of the classic three-aisled cross-basilica having a nave, two aisles, and a single transept. The choir is placed at the end of the nave. In the corners are two chapels devoted to Mary and Joseph.
