An unexpected oasis in the sea of consumerism on Kalverstraat, the curious Petrus en Pauluskerk, aka Papagaai, is a Catholic church from the 17th century that was a clandestine house of worship. Note the parrot over the door that gave the church its funny name. The slogan you'll see upon entering: '15 minutes for God'.
