C. Weber 1888-1889

St. Bavo, Raamsdonk, Brabant

In 1888, C. Weber began the construction of a new church in Raamsdonk. This is the current cruciform basilica type church in neo-Romanogothic style with cloverleaf-shaped eastern chancelt, with apses with ambulatories at the choir and the transept-arms. Although the western towers were never finished, this church is regarded as the architect’s finest work.
The tall dome is visible from a long distance. Tthe Germans thretaened to blow it uè during the war but the Parish Priest was able to persuade them otherwise. Unfortunately, the chancel has been destroyed by the liturgists who have installed a highly inappropriate organ in it.
