The Oude Kerk (Old Church) is a protestant church located at the heart of the old town center in Delft, the Netherlands. What is famous for this church is its slightly leaning brick tower. The tower is 75 meters tall and leans about two meters from the straight vertical position. It is known that there was a church on the same site all the way back from the 11th century, but the church’s most iconic feature of tall steeple was built in 1350. For the next 150 years, the Old Church dominated the skyline of the town of Delft until the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) was built.
