The Martinikerk is the oldest church in Groningen, Netherlands. The church and its associated tower are named after Saint Martin of Tours , the patron saint of the Bishopric of Utrecht to which Groningen belonged.
The origins of the Martinikerk are a cruciform church built in the 13th century, which was extended in the 15th and 16th centuries. It contains several 16th-century tombs and Wessel Gansfort's 18th-century tomb. Much of the wall and roof paintwork has been preserved. Of particular note is a 16th-century depiction of the life of Jesus Christ.
