The Oudenbosch Basilica
The Architecture of the Basilica
The Oudenbosch Basilica was designed by architect Dr. P. Cuijpers, who came up with a creative design after studying the architecture in Rome. The nave and interior were modeled after St. Peter's Basilica in Rome; while the facade is a replica of the Basilica of St. John Lateran, also in Rome. The interior is richly decorated with frescoes and sculptures.
Nowadays, people are still surprised to see the classical Italian appearance of the Oudenbosch basilica in the typical flat countryside of Noord-Brabant. Let yourself be amazed by this remarkable church, too!
