The 15th century Jeruzalemkerk, built by the influential Adornes family, was modeled on Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre and is topped with a Cross of Jerusalem. It holds the black marble tomb of Anselmus Adornes and his wife Margareta van der Banck. The macabre altarpiece has motifs of skulls, ladders, snakes, hammers and nails, while the rear chapel has a wooden casket with a statue of reposing Christ.
