We took the Metro from the left bank to visit this beautiful church. First suggestion is to take the elevator when exiting the Metro train. The walk to the street from the Metro is significant - and you have much more walking to do to...More

The church is absolutely beautiful inside and intricate paintings and architecture, BUT please be aware of the really aggressive beggars etc. outside. This is NIOT a reflection of the church itself or the staff. Those outside are the rudest and aggressive people, I had to...More

The metro tickets are valid for 2 hours from first activation, so your train ticket to Anvers will probably get you up the funicular, maybe down too.

It is free to get in. Six euros to go up the tower. If you wish to light a candle the suggested amount is three euros.
