Show sight on map

The Holy Anna church is the parish church of Hintham, a district of 's-Hertogenbosch in the Dutch province of Noord-Brabant. In the 19th century, Hintham grows into an elongated street village. The community therefore got its own church in 1910 and it will be a church village. The parish was dedicated to Saint Anna, the mother of the Virgin Mary. The church is a church -built church, which was designed by the Bossche architect W.Th. from Aalst. Apart from the type of stone used, and some architectural details, the church is in fact a copy of the Église Saint-Martin d'Aillant-sur-Tholon in France. The well-known restoration architect Viollet-le-Duc had designed a Modelkerk, which could serve as an example for village churches. The ground pattern is a three -aisled cross church, where the tower is placed aside. The facade has three portals, and a rose window. Next to the church is a Sacred Heart image of Charles Grips, which was founded in 1949 as a war memorial.
