We were in Amsterdam, took canal cruises and walked around and this beautiful Basilica was ever present. We walked around took pics and then tried to go inside. It was locked. Was it under construction? We couldn’t figure it out. Churches are usually open. I...More

This is an imposing building facing a canal with a lovely central rose window and tower on either side. The architecture is a mix of styles. The interior design is unlike anything I have ever seen before. Along with a lot of wood, many materials...More

One of Amsterdam’s most beautiful churches! The dark, cozy atmosphere inside takes you to another time and the places were you can light a candle are plenty. It’s free to get in so why not pay a visit? Close to the Central station and easy...More

We stubbled upon this basilica and were amazed at the beauty. They have booklets that tell you about the different naves and architectural features for 1 euro each. Also, a lovely gift shop with icons and jewelry.

Another of Amsterdam's excellent architectural wonders - both inside and outside - highly recommended.

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
