New on 500px : Maria Maior by schelpje67 by schelpje67

Dordrecht : the beautiful entrance to the Church Maria Maior built in 1843.
The St. Maria Maior is Dordrecht’s Old-Catholic church. It is a one-aisled building in neo-Classical style, designed by town-architect G.N. Itz and built in 1842-1843. The church is located at some distance from the public road, a reminder of the period of protestant rule; the current church replaced a hidden church, which was located behind a house. The house was demolished in the 1840’s.
