Sint Clemenskerk (Saint Clemens Church), Eindhoven

Saint Clemens Church is a Catholic church constructed in 1872 in the heart of the Nuenen village. The architect who worked on the design of the church was Carl Weber and he executed the structure in Neo-Gothic style. The base of the church is cross-figured, like most of the churches in the area. The facade of the building is an octagonal tower which reaches almost sixty meters.

The pride of the present religious site are the ancient bells, the biggest ones dating from 1490 year and weighing in at 1420 kilograms. In 1972, when the church celebrated its 100th anniversary, it was exposed to some grand restorational works. The interior is ornate with a splendid altar, saints' statues and two organs.

Van Gogh rented a studio next door the Saint Clemens Church for 75 guilders a year and the church appeared in one of his painting and in a drawing.
