Our Lord in the Attic Church MG_9326, Amsterdam

Our Lord in the Attic is a 17th-century canal house, house church, and museum in the city center of Amsterdam. The Catholic Church was built on the top three floors of the canal house during the 1660s. It is an important example of a “schuilkerk”, or “clandestine church,” in which Catholics and other religious dissenters from the seventeenth century Dutch Reformed Church, unable to worship in public, held services. Since 28 April 1888, the church is open as a museum, and has annually 85,000 visitors.
