The 15th century church, Lebuinuskerk, is located near the Weigh House (Waag) in the city. Its Gothic construction is impressive and is a reminder that stands for the wealth at the time. It has a vaulted ceiling that is intricately decorated, windows with high arches, and 3 massive aisles. There are many medieval murals on the walls in the nave, and although they are faded, you can still see the skillful and intricate design.
