Catharinakerk - Church
The (formerly Catholic) church was founded around 1270 and dedicated to Saint Catherine. The church tower that still stands today is most likely from that period. The church building was constructed in the 14th century. According to tradition, both side aisles were demolished during the Eighty Years' War (1568-1648). A major restoration took place in 1735, giving the church its current form without a vestry. The vestry was added after the Second World War.
In 2011, the church was extensively restored and redesigned on behalf of the Protestant Community of Zoutelande. The walls, affected by salt, were treated and re-pointed on both the inside and outside. Additionally, the pews were replaced with chairs. The church is now suitable for multiple purposes.
