To escape the freeze-melt-freeze-melt fun of April in New England, myself, Alison, and Sharon decided to spend a few days exploring Amsterdam! We made so many amazing memories that I’ll need to share the highlights in multiple installments.
Ons’ Lieve Heer op Solder is a Catholic Church was built on the top three floors of a canal house during the 1660s. At that time, it was prohibited to celebrate mass, so churches like this had to remain a secret.
To do this, they cut a large hole in the top three floors and supported the gap with iron bars.
While a bit strange, the invention and beauty found in the details are quite astounding.
