This building is full of history, you can smell it in each corner! Unfortunately, the most of the internal decoration is lost. It deserve a visit anyway.

The Grote Kerk of Breda is a very impressive monument. The forefathers of our royals founded the church in the 15th century and many of them are buried in magnificent graves.
