Janskerk, Utrecht, the Netherlands
Wall and low arched door of the Janskerk (St. John’s Church) in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
Utrecht (U): Janskerk (c. 1040-1048)
The combination of a facade in Renaissance style, a Romanesque nave and transept and a Gothic choir immediately makes it clear that this church has a long history. The St. John’s church was built as the northern end of a cross of churches of which the first cathedral was the center, and must originally have been virtually identical to the Pieterskerk (“St. Peter’s church”) at the east end of the cross.
