The St. Servatius Basilica is located at the Vrijthof in Maastricht, next to St. John's Church. The basilica was built on the grave of St. Servatius, the patron saint of Maastricht. Its inner Romanesque part dates back to the year 1000, the outer Gothic structure was constructed in the 14th and 15th centuries.

The Treasury of the St. Servatius Basilica houses an impressive collection of religious art and artifacts. The main relics are the Noodkist(a decorated wooden chest) and a portrait bust of St. Servatius.
