Haarlem Grote Kerk 1

It's not Chartres, but we did very much like Haarlem's Grote Kerk, probably the largest Dutch church we have seen so far.
View from the northwest















Tapestry paintings on the columns



















And then you look up and see the sort-of fan
vaulting in the timbered ceiling




















View abaft



















Crossing















View afore; not a painted ceiling, but still very
pleasant to look at




















More tapestry painting



















Pulpit



















Another beautiful organ...which played
throughout our visit (there was a concert that
evening)





















Vicki liked the painted columns...



















South aisle



















Orphans' charity box



















Brewers' chapel (seriously)















Gifts of ship-builders' guild















Helpful depiction of the church; interesting challenge for the
frame-maker

Great! We visited here in 2008. Rode the train from Amsterdam. There was a market set up in the area outside the church. An interesting day trip.
