Special visitors

On May 14th 1985, a day after the holiday of Saint Servatius, H.H. Pope John Paul II visited the Church of Saint Servatius. It constituted the highlight of a short visit to Maastricht. During his visit, the pope declared to have elevated the Church to Basilica.

The most recent highlight of the Saint Servatius' was the visit of Prince Royal Willem-Alexander and his fiancée miss Máxima Zorreguieta. In October 2001, they visited the basilica as part of Máxima's introductory tour to the Netherlands.
