Sint Nicolaaskerk,

Prins Hendrikkade 73, 1012 AD

The church was consecrated on February 7, 1887 and on March 30 the Blessed Sacrament was taken across town from the conventicle to the new church in a splendid procession.
The new church of St Nicholas is among the better known of the new Amsterdam churches. The tall and spacious building occupies a prominent place in the city centre, opposite the Central Station, and is a rare example of the neo-Baroque style. Most new Roman Catholic Churches, in Holland as well as in other European countries, were built in the neo-Gothic style promoted by Viollet-le-Duc in France, Pugin in England and Cuypers in Holland. Neo-Gothic architecture referred back to the heyday of medieval French Catholicism and its world-famous cathedrals. Therefore, it is all the more remarkable that the architects of the church of St Nicholas based themselves largely on the international Baroque style
