When the sun shines through the 72 world-famous stained glass windows, it becomes immediately clear what makes Sint Jan in Gouda so special. No other church in the world has so many well-preserved 16th-century stained-glass windows.

The longest church in the Netherlands

The great fire of 1552 destroyed a large part of the medieval Sint Jan church. Shortly after the fire, officials commissioned the construction of Holland’s most spectacular church. The “Gouda Windows” (Goudse Glazen) are a highlight of European stained-glass art. Come and marvel at the beautiful colors and the lively play of light.
