|The Cathedral of Saint Bavo is a cathedral in
Haarlem, the Netherlands, built by Joseph Cuypers from 1895 to 1930 to
replace the former waterstaatskerk in the Jansstraat called the St.
That church was itself a replacement for the Sint-Bavokerk, that
had been converted to Protestantism from Catholicism in 1578.
Cathedral of Saint Bavo now serves as the main cathedral for the Roman
Catholic Diocese of Haarlem-Amsterdam.
Within the Cathedral, the former
sacristy has been converted into a small museum (schatkamer) containing
historical artefacts from Haarlem's Catholic past.
