The allure of the Stokstraat quarter

Today, Stokstraat is known as the place where you will find the most exclusive and luxury shops in the Netherlands, but it was not always so. If there's any street that has seen its fortunes turn over the centuries, it's this one. 

Onze Lieve Vrouwebasiliek

Both religious and non-religious visitors and residents often light a candle in reverence. The candles cast mesmerizing reflections on the glass behind which Mary shines bright. It is a beautiful sight and definitely worth a visit, whether as a one off or as a ritual!
