Sint Janskerk (1552)

GOUDA - The first mention of the Sint-Janskerk can be found in documents from the year 1280, but the current church was built after the great fire of 1552. It was named after John the Baptist, the patron saint of Gouda. With its 123 metres, it is the longest church in the Netherlands. The church is also world-renowned for its Gouda glass. These 72 stained glass windows, particularly those from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, display scenes from the Bible and from Dutch history.
