St Vincentius Church

  Kerkpad 1, Volendam      (+31) 299 36 33 95     more than a year ago
Although Volendam was originally a predominantly Catholic town, it didn’t have a Catholic church until 1860. Volendam’s Catholics had to walk to Edam for their weekly dose of spirituality, but continuous complaints at the Episcopate resulted in the construction of this large neo-Baroque church dedicated to Saint Vincent. The interior is quite simple and unfortunately the church’s main pride and joy, the organ, was damaged by a lightning strike in 2009. The church isn't always open to the public, but visitors are usually welcome at the weekend and you can try your luck at other times as well.
