Zutphen, St. Walburgis church – The Netherlands

with No Comments



St. Walburgis Church.

In the 11th century Zutphen started to build the Saint Walburgis church. The oldest part is demolished long ago, but we can still visit the part that is built later in the medieval centuries. During the end of the 16th century most churches in the Netherlands became Protestant. We call this period ‘Iconoclasm’ (in Dutch: ‘Beeldenstorm’), because almost all statues or other Catholic signs where smashed into peaces.

We also have a blog. The story about ‘Little monks in disguise‘ is set in Ireland and very funny.

A story about puffins. I visited these birds on Skellig Michael, an Irish island, which once was home to monks. Only a few amount of tourists can go there.
