    Till 1559 there was a Roman Catholic chapel devoted to Maria in use on the island. In 1608 the first vicae settles at "Caghe". He finds the chapel demolished and just a few believers. In 1618 a first church is constructed that will be used for 250 years. In 1873-1874 a new church is built on the foundations of the old one. In 1950 the interior is renovated; a central heating replaces the coal stove. In 2006 the outer walls are brought back in style and the building gets the status of a National monument.

    The plaquette in the front wall reads:
    DEZE KERK IS IN DEN JARE

    Strange enough the Kaag cemetery is the newest spot on the island. It's open since 2009 and when I visited the Kaag in 2010 just 3 graves where there.

    Former sail loft - Kaag

    The former sail loft now is a family house. Only the sign "Oude Zeilmakerij" still points to its former use.
