Impressions of Maastricht

My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary last Wednesday. We spent a few days in the city of Maastricht which is in the south of Holland. I thought I would share a few photos to give you an impression of this city.

Firstly, a remaining piece of the ancient city walls.

This adorable statue was perched on a wall of a side street near the river Maas.
Isn't this such a pretty location for a florist?
The parish church of St. Jan ~ a protestant church right beside the basilica.
The convent under the archway of the basilica.
A beautiful ancient statue still remains in tact in the archway.
The basilica of Saint Servatius which I will show you in more detail from both indoors and out tomorrow.

I love the statue. Do you know what it is for, or of? And what does he have in his hand? Nice photos. Lovely way to spend an anniversary!
