O.L.V. Onbevlekt Ontvangen, Hague

The design of the O.L.V. Onbevlekt Ontvangen was inspired by Notre Dame in Paris. In the 19th century, both The Hague and its Catholic parish experienced impressive growth. New parishes were created, one of which was Our Lady of the Immaculate Assumption. A provisional church was raised in 1877. In 1891, construction of the current church began. The imposing facade of the church has two towers and is ornamented with numerous niches and small pieces of natural stone.
