Goor (Ov):  H.H. Petrus en Paulus (J.W. Boerbooms, 1893-1894)



After the Reformation the catholic parish of Goor was disbanded. In 1809 it was refounded. The current church is a three-aisled pseudo-basilica, designed by J.W. Boerbooms in a Neo-Gothic style influenced by Lower Rhine Gothic. The church is not oriented; instead of the choir, it's the front that faces the east. To add some monumentality, the facade is flanked by polygonal stair-turrets, while the side-aisles end at the back in polygonal chapels. The portal at the front was added in 1935.
