Don’t forget to pay a visit to the Saint John’s Cathedral.
Dedicated to John the Baptist, patron saint of Gouda.
The longest church in the Netherlands. More important are the 70 stained glass windows (de Goudse Glazen) from the 16th Century.
St. Jan’s Church is located in beautiful, historical Gouda and is the city’s principal monument.
Originally a Catholic church, but became a Protestant place of worship in 1573. This as a result of the Dutch Revolt against the Spanisch siege.
