St John's Cathedral, Den Bosch

4.6
#1 of 33 in Sightseeing in North Brabant Province
Architectural Building Religious Site
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.
