A beautiful basilica with fine shapes and a cloister. Nice well kept interiors. One of the most beautiful churches in Holland.

Two medieval churches standing side by side with a lot of history between them. One side is the Basilica of St. Sevatious and then the Protestant Church in red next to it. Legend has it that it used to painted with ox blood centuries ago!

The paid visit is worth it. The Cathedral has many side altars and incredible musuem with beautiful relics. This saint is beloved in the town.

We loved this Beautiful Basilica in Maastricht. We learned that the present-day church is probably the fourth church that was built on the site of the grave of Saint Servatius, an Armenian missionary who was bishop of Tongeren and died allegedly in 384 in Maastricht.[1]...More

The treasury displayed treasures linked to the history of the church. My daughter loved the bright jewelry and relics. The church itself includes the tomb of St Servaas from 385. It’s quiet and pleasant.

I really loved walking around the church. It’s in a very exclusive area in Maastricht. This place has so much long history and kept everything so well. I would recommend you to read more history about the church on google before you get there.

I have visited and paid for entrance fees far in excess of this cost and this had to be the rudest experience of entry to a religious sight I have ever encountered! It was not particularly busy, just after half 12, we approached the kiosk...More

You have to pay to enter the church, but this includes access to a lovely garden cloister and a treasury with interesting reliquaries and medieval art. The highlight is the 12th c. Noodkist, or Emergency Reliquary, that is still carried through the city in times...More

The basilica is beautiful (those glass windows!!) and contains a lot of information. You can also visit the Treasury and the small garden inside. Not too expensive, and interesting in itself.
