Behold the striking beauty of the most stunning stained glass windows of the world

Stained glass windows have been a major element of almost every type of historic architecture since the 13th century. Philip Johnson, Oscar Niemeyer, and Antoni Gaudí are few of the world-renowned architects who have incorporated artists in their projects to fill the windows with intricate patterns and many untold stories.

From La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona to Church of Notre-Dame au Sablon in Belgium, the striking artwork on these glass windows speak of the history of that time while adding beauty and illuminating the structures at the same time. This quality has intrigued many photographers and have ultimately led them to capture these windows cum artworks in beautifully composed pictures.
