An abandoned 17th century chapel in the Netherlands, once part of a beautiful castle/monestary, is about the only part still standing. Damaged, disgraced and robbed of its dignity, it still feeds your imagination of how things used to be.The acoustic is incredible, it carries a whisper to every far corner and gives you just an impression of how powerfull preaching must have been.

  • There were actually 2 of these confessionchairs in teh church. So they could take cngfessions from 4 people at the same time. Shows how many people went to this church in its better days. It must have been crowded :-)
