Grote Kerk Veere

The name Grote Kerk (Great Church) is no exaggeration in this case. You can see its imposing appearance from afar. The church was founded in 1342, and besides its religious function, it also had many other functions, such as military hospital, beggar's workshop and storehouse. At the time of the inundation of Walcheren (1944) and during the Flood Disaster (1953), the church was even used as an emergency shelter for livestock. All church treasures and ornaments disappeared over time. Today, heritage in the Grote Kerk comes alive with a modern experience. It is also a stage for art and culture.
