Martin's church roof

The roof looked upon here is from the Martinikerk or Martin´s Church, seen from up the Martinitoren or Martin´s Tower. They were both named after Saint Martin of Tours (316-397), the patron saint of the Bishopric of Utrecht to which Groningen belonged. The origins of the Martin's Church are a cruciform church built in the 13th century, which was extended in the 15th and 16th centuries.

The white with blue buildings that you see on the top left belong to the UMCG, the University Medical Center Groningen, the main hospital of the city.
