St John’s Cathedral, or ‘Sint-Janskathedraal’, in Den Bosch is different than other Gothic Cathedrals. Or so it felt for me. It is not situated within a grand open square. One has to walk around the church at close range and crank your head up in order to view the magnificent detail of the Gothic towers. I visited the Cathedral twice, and each time I was the only tourist within the garden surrounding it. For a split second I was able to imagine how it must have felt to live during the middle ages.
