St Lucia's Church - Ravenstein

N 51.7970015 / E 5.6512977

Before St Lucia Church stood here, there was a much smaller church: the Jesuit Church was built in 1609 after a major town fire. Proceeds from the Ravenstein Lottery ensured that St Lucia Church could be built. What makes this church so special? It is the only Catholic church in the northern Netherlands built in the Baroque style. In the Land of Ravenstein, religious freedom prevailed, which made it possible to build Catholic churches. In the rest of the Republic of the Netherlands, this was not allowed and church services were held in barn churches or sheltered churches.
