A landmark Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-la-Paix in the Ivory Coast is fractionally smaller than St Peter’s in Rome. It incorporates a greater area of stained glass than the total area of stained glass in France.

Here's where I got it: http://www.ecowas.info/ivratt.htm

Maybe it's a typo, and they meant to list a particular cathedral in France. However, this Cathedral in the Ivory Coast may be an interesting place to visit. I haven't found pictures of the windows online.

Some of the filming of the DaVinci Code was at Lincoln Cathedral in the UK.  They are now selling the props, as discussed in this web site.  Doesn't look like anything with a st. gl. motif, but some of you may be interested.
