Sint Caecilia Chapel - Tiel
In the Hanseatic period, the building of a convent for the Augustinian nuns, the St. Caecilia convent, was ordered. In 1494, an agreement was made between Nicolaas van Teefelen, pastor of Tiel, and the monks, according to which the nuns, who had previously lived here together without taking vows, had shortly changed to a private monastic life. Nothing remains of the convent except the chapel. This single-nave, late Gothic chapel is now used by the Evangelical Lutheran Church. During the last World War, the chapel was severely damaged, but shortly after the war it was lovingly restored.

Did you know that Tiel was once a Hanseatic city? As a 'neighbour' of the great city of Nijmegen, Tiel profited from the trade on the river Waal. Unfortunately, the history of Tiel as a Hanseatic city did not last long.
