A very beautifully maintained castle along De Kromme Rijn. There is a large garden around it that could use some maintenance. If you drive along the main road from W.b.D towards Bunnik, the castle shines on the right side of the road.

Beautiful walks possible around Beverweerd Castle. The castle grounds are currently "no trespassing". That doesn't matter for the walk. Walked via clog paths. Largely also accessible with a dog on a leash. Approximately 5 kilometers. Had lunch at Landrucci, a charming, somewhat Italian farm shop with a covered veranda.

Worth the effort. Visited an exhibition by Gert Jan Jansen. Beautiful building in a beautiful location. Lots of history. Beautiful estate. The paintings of this master forger are also a journey through (art) history.

Always nice to see the great collection of paintings by master copied Janssen. Impressive that someone masters so many painting styles.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
