Oldest parish church in Delft, founded around 1200. The oldest parts date from the 14th century. The 75-metre-high tower was built between 1325-1350. The last additions on Oudekerkstraat date from 1510-1536. Stone-clad facades are done in Brabant Gothic, designed by Antonis Keldermans. Pulpit (1548) is decorated with unique carvings in Renaissance style. Tombs of naval heroes Piet Hein and Maarten Tromp. A unique collection of 27 stained glass windows by Joep Nicolas (20th century). Until the Reformation, the church was dedicated to Saint Hippolytus.
