Oude Kerk (Old Church)
Oude Kerk (Old Church) Review
At the very heart of historic Delft, the Gothic Oude Kerk, with its tower 6 feet off-kilter, is the last resting place of Vermeer. This is the oldest church in Delft, having been founded in 1200. Building went on until the 15th century, which accounts for the combination of architectural styles, and much of the austere interior dates from the latter part of the work. The tower, dating to 1350, started leaning in the Middle Ages, and today the tilt to the east is somewhat stabilized by the 3-foot tilt to the north but sill prevents ascension by visitors. At the top is the largest carillon bell in the Netherlands, weighing nearly 20,000 pounds and now is used only on state occasions.
