Maartenskerk - Hillegom

Maartens Church Hillegom

Maartenskerk, Kerkplein 1, Hillegom

At the place where a chapel already stood in 1248, the Maartenskerk was built shortly after. The Maartenskerk is a Protestant church, but was originally the Catholic Sint Maartenskerk. At the bottom of the tower was once the prison of the village of Hillegom. The ship of the church was destroyed around 1575 during the battle between Spaniards and Geuzen. In 1929 the section between the tower and choir was rebuilt. The tower survived a fire in 1978.
