Amazing church

The outside of this church is not as beautiful as the Cathedral or the Saint Paul church, but the interior is stunning.

If you like to visit the second most beautiful church in the centre of Antwerp (in my opinion that is) then this is it. And, as a plus, this one doesn't charge entrance fee like the cathedral does. What is also interesting is that this church, build in the early 1600's, is in typical Baroque style, where the Cathedral is... More

Only a few steps away from the 'Grote Markt', its well worth to visit this church. The interior is completely renovated with pious attention to the original.

If you're craving a break from the Gothic and are looking for something rather sumptuously Baroque, then a visit to this wonderful church located on an equally wonderful square is required. As a bonus, the beautiful architecture houses some equally beautiful art, namely paintings by Flemish masters, such as Rubens. Need I say more?

Rubens had a hand in designing the tower, the fascade, and the high altar. There were originally 43 of his paintings, many lost in a fire in 1718. This baroque masterpiece shouldn't be missed.

A fantistic place, a must go in Antwerpen. The pictures of the first world war are something so see while entening the time capsule. When you arrive at the top, the view is spectacular

Typical Jesuit church from the period of contrareformation. Not the most exceptional church of Antwerp but very nice.

Very nice Rococo Jesuit church, at its best on Sunday mornings when there is an artists mass at 10 am. Musicians from all over the world show off and take benefit of thd church's fantastic acoustics. Check the billboard on the church door for the programme.
