Places of Worship

The Agnietenkapel, or the Chapel of Holy Agnes, may just be the oldest medieval chapel still in mint condition in Amsterdam. Built in 1397, and rebuilt after a fire in 1470, the Agnietenkapel is a Gothic Chapel that combines the medieval touch of the old-age building, with impressive Renaissance-style design featured in the ceiling paintings and stained-glass windows. The Agnietenkapel was an important center for learning and scientific activities since 1632. The Athenaeum Illustre, the forefather of the present-University of Amsterdam, was founded by Barlaeus and Vossius, where students were taught in the arts of the arcane, astronomy and scientific studies. The Agnietenkapel also contains the oldest lecture hall in the country where knowledge had been passed to pupils since the early 17th century.
