  • The Church of Peter and Paul stands several dozen meters south-east of the Basilica of Willibrorda on a high hill. In the THIRD and FOURTH centuries of the era the Roman fortress, which was transformed into a monastery in the SEVENTH century, became here. The first church was built here in the 11TH century on the former monastery crypt. In the 15TH century the church was enlarged and rebuilt in Gothic style, and in the 18TH century it was changed to baroque furnishings. Near the choir there are remnants of the 11TH and 13TH century frescoes and murals from the turn of the 16TH and 17TH centuries. Visiting the church is worth taking a look into the illuminated deep well located in its territory-it is a remand of the Roman fortress standing in this place.
