St. Paschalis Baylon

1) St. Paschalis Baylon

The St. Paschalis Baylon is a pseudo-basilica built in the Traditional style. The designer's frequent use of ornamental braces is very obvious here. Other churches by the same designer can be found in this area. The entire group of buildings has a more or less rectangular form in which the church itself is diagonally situated. The interior also has a distinctive design, with a spacious middle aisle and small side aisles.

2) Willemskerk

The Willemskerk is a typical example of the Neo-Gothic style and has a number of features of both English Gothicism and neo-Gothicism, which were incorporated into architecture in The Netherlands under the reign of King Willem II. The octagonal braces are particularly worth noting here. The structure was built in 1845-1846 and, after a brief period as the imperial building, it was made into a church in 1856.
German Reformed Church

3) German Reformed Church

The Reformed churches of the Hague are situated on Bleijenburg Street. It is an association of Protestant denominations traditionally linked by similar structures of governing. Each parish in the Reformed group initially had its own church administration. A number of these churches have expanded into international denominations, and most have been divided into further denominations.
H. Jacobus de Meerdere

4) H. Jacobus de Meerdere

In the heart of the city is this Catholic parish community, which celebrates the Eucharist. The parish community is centered around Jesus's message of love. Everyone is welcome to visit this parish and learn about its inspiration and activities.
O.L.V. Onbevlekt Ontvangen

5) O.L.V. Onbevlekt Ontvangen

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.

6) Julianakerk

The Julianakerk is a religious sect historically linked to the residence of Oranje-Nassau. A commemorative inscription next to the entry remembers September 20, 1924, when the Royal Family member Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, was with Juliana Louisa Emma Maria Wilhelmina, the Princess of the Netherlands, when she lay this commemorative stone. In 1927, the princess formally became an associate of the religious sect of this church. Between services, the church is used as a theater and for other events.
St. Martha

7) St. Martha

Construction on the St. Martha church was started in 1908-1909 and finished in 1924. St. Martha was built in Neo-Gothic style in two separate phases. The first section was raised in 1908-1909 and is composed of the choir, the center of church and the large side aisles. In 1924, the church was completed after the center of the church was extended and the facade and tower were added. These sections had been part of the initial design but were later built in a more modest Neo-Gothic style.
