St John's Cathedral, Den Bosch

4.6
#1 of 11 in Historic Sites in North Brabant Province
St John's Cathedral is a prime example of Gothic architecture. Built from 1220 to 1530, this Catholic church has operated as a place of worship for multiple denominations over the years. The church has undergone three rounds of restorations, the most recent finishing in 2010. Admire the 25 angel statues that were added, including one dressed in jeans and holding a mobile phone. The phone has only one button, which, according to the artist, is a direct dial to God. See the large stained-glass windows and an organ of great importance due to its long history.

    Most people go the St. Jan in at the tower and walk around within the Church. If you are on the outside around the Church makes you see how beautiful and richly decorated the Church is, particularly at the back. View check out the original paintings on the inside in some places still under the White plaster come out.

    Beautiful and impressive gothic style church. Unable to climb up due to lack of time but worth the visit.
