De Papegaai

An oasis of peace. Hidden in the busy Kalverstraat you will find this church that began the first two centuries of its existence as a shelter church.

In a shopping street like the Kalverstraat you don't expect it, a church. Many therefore pass the doors of the special building carelessly. The fact that the Roman Catholic Church now has a public entrance has not always been the case. The church was built in the 17th century in the garden of a wealthy family as a shelter church. This is because religious freedom was only reserved for the Calvinist Reformed Church. In 1853 the Episcopal hierarchy was restored in the Netherlands and it was decided to replace the shelter church with a new, larger church. It is not without reason that the church was called 'The Parrot'. The owner of the garden in which the church was initially built was bird trader.
