  The pride of Gorinchem: Saint John
by Pavlik_NL

Built between 1450 and 1517 the Sint John's tower is the number one monument of Gorinchem. The churchtower reaches just over 61 meters in height and offers a splendid view over the fortified inner town of Gorcum. In the tower two historical bells, dating back from 1481 and 1625. A carrillion counts no less then 49 bells, playing around the hour. Also remarkable is the sunhour that is attached to one of the walls. It dates back to 1785.
