Churches in Amsterdam

As an historical city in Europe, Amsterdam includes several ancient buildings and old constructions throughout its territory. The churches are a big example of the deep faith of the people in Amsterdam. The city has a large number of denominations and churches. In this fashion, exploring these sacred sites is a must when visiting the city because of its deep cultural and historical background.

Although, the Protestantism entered in Europe and especially in Amsterdam in 1578 during the Religious Wars, the city kept its Catholic faith. In fact, the city was always called as the Holy City. That is why plenty of Protestant and Catholic churches were established in the area. Nowadays, these amazing religious constructions are one of the principal touristic spots in the city. In fact, each church has a special and singular characteristic.

As an example, we can mention some important churches in the city such as the Church of Saint Nicolaaskerk, the Wester Kerk Church, the Noorderkerk Church, The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, and the Oude Kerk just to mention a few.
