The last updates of 2019

The last updates of 2019 take us back to the province of Limburg, more specifically the most beautiful city of the Netherlands, Maastricht. First, the page was split in two, with a second page now covering the churches in areas added to the city since 1920. The first page is now about the city center only, and seven objects were added to it while four older pictures were replaced. There's also an improved version of the page about St. Lambertus church (see picture), with better text and many new pictures. That is actually the third version of this page which in its first form originated from 2001 and was radically updated in 2005. 

And so another year is coming to an end and as usual I like to conclude with some statistics. About the first I'm not so sure: was it Archimon's twentieth year, or its twenty-first?  Anyway, it was a good year, with updates just about  every two weeks. A total of twenty-eight new pages were added, nine about municipalities and nineteen about specific churches. No architects this year, and neither were there any older pages translated, but many pages were reviewed and given their share of new pictures and usually improved text.  
On my trips this year I visited sixty-five towns and villages in six provinces and took 3480 pictures of 142 churches and chapels, of which 83 were new to me and many of which I have yet to add to this website, which had over 18000 pageviews by some 9500 visitors coming from 117 countries.

New updates are already being worked on but will not be published until 2020. I hope you will all join me again then.

Three new Noord-Holland pages

Three new pages in the Noord-Holland section: first a small one about some of the churches in the Drechterland municipality. Also, two of these churches get a page of their own, the Pancratiuskerk in Oosterblokker and the St. Laurentius in Hoogkarspel.

Er is een nieuwe pagina over kerken in de gemeente Drechterland
