UTRECHT: BLAUWKAPEL

nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blauwkapel (dutch)

This village was most likely named after the Blauwkapel chapel (1451), or Bluechapel because the walls and ceiling were painted blue. The Blauwkapel fort was build from 1818 until 1821 and is one of the biggest on the New Dutch Water (defence) Line. And the biggest meteorite strike of the Netherlands occurred there close by in 1843.
