Photographed & edited by Riccardo Vincenzi. Artist's recommendation: 28" x 40" (70cm x 100cm) printed on aluminum.

A three-aisled cruciform Basilican church with a transept, choir, and ambulatory, dedicated to Saint Catherine of Alexandria. The distinctive feature is its three hexagonal radiating chapels.  The front the church features three connected porches and two differently detailed towers. Its design was based on 13th-century French Gothic churches, especially those of Chartres and Reims.

The church replaced a derelict medieval church. For this church, Cuypers used many of the ideas about symbolism in GothicismFor this church Cuypers designed two different towers. The southern tower is the more refined of the two and represents the Ivory Tower, symbol of the purity of Mary. The northern tower is decorated with turrets and battlements; this 'defensive' look represents the Tower of David, a symbol of strength.
