A grave that has been hidden for 200 years is being searched in the center of Venlo. Hidden under the floor of the Sint Martinuskerk are the remains of a former bishop of Roermond, buried in 1793.
How did this bishop end up in Venlo and why was his 'secret grave' hidden under the church floor for so long? In the documentary 'De Verdwenen Bisschop' the search for Philip Damiaan van Hoensbroeck is portrayed. Check out the first images.
