Cornelis Rademaker + Cornelia van Ruitenburg
This baroque pilgrimage church designed by Lucas Faydherbe was one of the first domed churches in the Low Countries.
The dome was to have been even higher, but the substructure proved not to be sufficiently robust.
Architect and church engaged in a bitter battle about additional reinforcements. Inside under the dome are two huge reliefs, also by Faydherbe, believed by everyone to be sandstone until the bombing raids in the Second World War.
But sandstone would have been too heavy, so the resourceful Faydherbe had used gypsum.
Only when the damaged reliefs were repaired did the deception come to light. At the front of the church is a miraculous statue of the Virgin Mary which is carried in the annual Hanswijk procession.
In the late Pope John Paul II prayed in this church, whose status was elevated to that of a basilica two years later.
Jan Pieter Smiesing + Maria Letzer
