Gereja Santa Perawan Maria' also known as the Church Of The Birth Of Our Lady is an exquisite Catholic church with gothic architecture. The awe-inspiring church was the first Roman Catholic Church to be built in Surabaya and was inaugurated in 1900. Built using red-bricks imported from Europe, it's high ceilings and gothic architectural style are reminiscent of the classical European churches that it drew inspiration from.
The church was damaged as a result of fires that raged through the city during the Battle of Surabaya, and during the ensuing restoration projects bricks of different colours were used, leading to the uneven colouration of the church.
