If you go for a stroll through the green hills between Nijmegen and Groesbeek you will suddenly be confronted by a mirage. The large dome and two towers of a white-plastered, building with an eastern look loom above the trees. Despite its oriental appearance, this really is a Dutch church. Inspired by a pilgrimage to the Middle East, architect Jan Stuyt and artist Piet Gerrits made this Roman Catholic total artwork at the request of the parish priest, Father Arnold Suys.
