De Papegaai or Jozefkerk is hidden away in the stylish Kalverstraat shopping street. The church was designed by architect G. Moele in 1848. The Papegaai (parrot) was a code name for the secret church located in the houses behind the Kalverstraat during the Reformation. The church has a complete neo-Gothic interior and style. The eponymous parrot is carved out of stone in the tiny neo-Gothic doorway on the Kalverstraat side.
