Grote Kerk (St James Church) was completed in the 16th century. It has a 93 meter tall tower, one of the tallest in The Netherlands. The interior has some beautiful stain glass work, a wooden carved pulpit, as well as splendid sepulchral monuments.

Historic place. Worth to visit. Very nice neighborhood. In sunny days you can grab coffee and some sandwiches at the nearest bakeries and enjoy the weather with the beautiful view!

Very nice church in a historical city. You have to take nearly 300 steps to climb to the tower, but it is worth every step. The view from the tower is impressive.

Really impressive church building which dominates the historic town of Dordrecht. Unfortunatetly not always open to be visited spontanously.
