New Bavo Cathedral Haarlem

green copper covered dome of the new bavo cathedral haarlem and it's many towers

Namesake of the old Saint Bavo church, but completely different is the New Bavo Cathedral Haarlem.
This is a three-aisled cruciform basilica from the end of the 19th century.
This dome cathedral in Haarlem is unique and with the Sagrada Familia, the Sacré-Coeur, the Westminster Cathedral it is in the top five of the most important new churches in the world built in the 19th and 20th centuries.
The mighty cathedral has 12 towers and a 65 meter high dome.
The cathedral contains architectural styles such as neo-Gothic, neo-Romanesque, Jugendstil and style elements of the Amsterdam School and Berlage.
Large windows, glittering mosaics and reflective materials: everything in this basilica is dominated by light. The sunlight is an important part of the architecture.

One of the most picturesque places to visit in Haarlem is the new Saint Bavo Cathedral. Best in combination with one of our private tours.
