Petrus- en Pauluskerk

The Peter and Paul Church in Straelen is a Roman Catholic church, which, despite the conquest of Straelen in 1632 by the State and Protestant stadtholder Frederik Hendrik, remained Catholic. This son of William of Orange allowed the Catholic inhabitants of his conquered areas to continue to propagate their faith. Although they had to hand over some churches to the Protestants in return, this was not the case for the Peter and Paul Church. In the following years Frederik Hendrik did not have enough manpower to keep all areas and he lost Straelen again.
