The Grote of Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk of Breda (Great Chruch of Our Lady of Breda) is Brabant-Gothic church in the city of Breda, The Netherlands. The present church was started in 1410 and completed in 1547. It was originally a Catholic church, but after The Reformation was changed to Protestant in 1637. During construction the church suffered a collapse of the main tower. In 1694 the tower suffered a fire and was replaced with a new tower in 1702. From 1993-1998 the church underwent a complete restoration and was officially reopened April 8, 1998 by Queen Beatrix.
