Bookstore Dominicanen 2

Originally built in 1294, church was renovated by architecture firm Merkx + Girod as a bookstore in the heart of Maastricht and walking distance from the train station. This is the second example of religiious space re-use; another was an instance of a church converted into a rock climbing recreational facility.

A Church in neighbouring Bristol is now an absailing centre, Ayush

In the olden days, people got buried inside the church. I can clearly see the graves' flat stones in this picture. Someone is pushing a pram over one such stone and the woman in brown, to the right, is standing on the edge of such a stone. I wonder whether the browsing people are aware of this. Back when the dead were buried in the church walkways, no-one worried about stepping on graves.
