Yes, the Church of the Assumption of Mary. It is a pretty surprising choice because the church (from 1895) has little history. The place of the church (completely incapsulated in ugly concrete appartment buildings) leaves no room for grandeur. A remarkable choice for a Prince de Bourbon de Parme, an Ambassador at the Holy See. The whole of Europe is studded with churches which have a Bourbon or Bourbon-Parma link. Of all these choices the couple decided to marry at one of the ugliest squares of the Netherlands.
The place now: picture
The place not so long ago (the church is at the left): picture
The Prince of Wales was right with his quote that architects have done more damage to London than the Germans during the Blitz. You can add Apeldoorn to that place!
