Medieval abbey church Rolduc

Limburg (NL), Historical, Public buildings, Interior, Exterior

The 12th century abbey church in the medieval abbey Rolduc in Kerkrade is an example of Mosan art. The crypt and the choir and chancel above have a cloverleaf pattern. The interior of both the church and the crypt contains richly carved capitals. Remarkable is the fact that the columns in the crypt all have a different design. In 1853, the young architect Pierre Cuypers was commissioned to restore the crypt and to reinstate as much as possible the original Romanesque fabric.
