"Interior - Stained glass windows" Cathédrale of St. Michael and St. Gudula Tip by Willettsworld
Cathédrale of St. Michael and St. Gudula, Brussels: 81 reviews and 177 photos
The highlight of the cathedral's stained glass windows is the great west window in the facade. It depicts the Last Judgment and dates from 1528 but it is not certain who was responsible for its construction. However, it was offered by Evard de la Marck, Prince-Bishop of Liege (1506-38) to celebrate an alliance with Charles V in 1518. Another notable window is the one depicting the Emperor Charles V and his wife Isabella of Portugal by Jean Haeck from 1537 in the north transept. The window in the south transept is also by Haeck and dates from 1538.
