This Gothic church, with its truncated tower in the axis of the nave, was completed in 1646. Destroyed in May 1940, then restored, St Laurenskerk was given a new bronze portal (1968), by Giacomo Manzù. The interior consists of a broad nave, whose austerity is attenuated by the warm colours of its panelled vault. The transept is home to mausolea belonging to 17C admirals and a graceful 16C organ case.
