For a long time it wasn’t allowed to build Catholic churches in Amsterdam. This still actively used church on the Waterlooplein originated from a hiding church that already arose in 1641. The rectangular building dates from 1837 and is built in neoclassical style. It’s a three-aisled hall church with Corinthian columns. Once this church stood on the water of the Leprozengracht and Houtgracht. Both canals were filled in 1882.
