Heathen Symbols in Breda

The city of Breda, Noord-Brabant, Netherlands, has a very rich history. During a visit I couldn’t resist to hunt for symbols in one of the oldest churches there. The Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk was built around 1410, probably on a (heathen) sacred site dedicated to the “Allmutter”. Although the church doesn’t have too much symbols, I found some surprises.
