The Grote Market

The gabled town hall (stadhuis), flanked by a square tower, dates back to the 16C. The St.Willibrord basilica (St-Willibrordusbasiliek) is a beautiful Gothic building. Its tower has an excellent peal of bells. For more than a century (1807-1931), the church has been used for both Catholic and Protestant services, the choir and ambulatory being reserved for the former and the nave for the latter.
