Sint Jan Basilica Minor anno 1924
Netherlands, Laren, Febr. 2007

My entry for Architecture Friday, March 1, 2007
Only 12 churches in the Netherlands are allowed to carry the name "Basilica Minor". Although this church is not an old one, it is quite famous. Its architect was Wolter te Riele. The two towers are 50 m high and are a landmark in Laren and its surroundings (Laren is a village 30 km east of Amsterdam).

I love anything with two towers.....great architecture....
it would sureley be much different in the summer months....with those
huge trees..!!.

Liz, in summer time it is difficult to take a picture unless you have a wide angle lens, so that you take it standing right in front of the church. But then you have the problem of the cars that are also parked in front of the church. I hate cars in front of a beautiful building! In this picture, these cars are hidden behind the green bushes, but at the left they are still visible.

i hate cold and dark days but then again there's this charm of the winter season that i learned to adopt and love...while biking everyday going to work..i always look up to the branches and structure of the empty trees and its very fine twigs...anyways...what i am saying is..i love the image of these three trees in front of the chruch just the way they are....beautiful lightings on this capture by the way...great entry my friend!!

We seem to have two things in common: 1. Being born in Indonesia, I was conditioned for the sun, so I too hate the cold dark days, 2. I like to bike very much!
The Netherlands are such a bicycle-friendly country, that it offers some compensation for its wet and chilly climate!

It's really quite a young building for a Church, but it has such character

I fully agree Pam. I often pass this church on bike tours and I am always impressed by its "personality"!

Thanks, Peter, for directing me here. From this angle the Basilica looks even more impressive.. especially with the two trees in front of the two towers.
