Seen from the Noordgeer, it is impossible to overlook the colossal structure of the Groote Kerk of Maasluis, built between 1629 and 1639. In front on the tower the historical shipyard Zorg en Vlijt is located. Shipbuilding has been an important industry in Maassluis over the centuries and dates back to the fourteenth century. Zorg en Vlijt was founded in 1878.
