Bookstore Dominicanen 1

Often called the most beautiful church in the world, this former church-now-bookstore combines books, architecture and coffee. There are perhaps a million books in there, or at least there is no shortage of space!

Great that another role has been found for this building, Ayush.
I like the idea of this...
Wow - what an amazing interior!
C'est original de faire une bibliothèque dans une église.
I know exactly where this is, Ayush, and loved it when we visited it back in 2010, I believe! We even had a koffie break in that café.

Oh well, when people don't want to go to church anymore, you are left with a building. I always wondered who ends up with the proceeds of selling the building.

Yes we sat in the right row against the wal. We were impressed with this Church-now-bookstore. What a way to keep the building and make people happy.

Too bad it is so short...
I can't think of a much better use for a former church than this, they are meant to be places where people can meet.
What a wonderful place for a bookstore. I would love to see this!
Someone showed this a few years ago. Wonderful.

It must cost a bomb to heat such a large space Ayush.
Oh, my. That is wonderful.
In Maastricht? If so, I too visited it a few years back.
