Koepelkerk, Maastricht

Koepelkerk, Maastricht

Koepelkerk is also known as the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church. It is a monumental Catholic church with modern architecture designed in 1921 by Alphonse Boosten and Jos Ritzen. It was completed in 1953, although the two planned towers were never built. Initially the modern design of the church was criticized by the diocese, but they could not prevent its construction. It has a green copper dome, marble altar, stained-glass windows by Henri Jonas and religious art from the first half of the 20th century. Koepelkerk is located on the corner of Scharnerweg and Heerderweg.
