As someone living here I regularly visit this church and for me it's the best example of Baroque grandeur of Antwerp's monumental churches. Beautiful, in very good state (not always the case with churches..), great interior and do not forget the 'calvary' monument next to the church. Definitely worth a visit, even if you're just one day in Antwerp.

It is nice, and it is well preserved. It is not in the middle of the old city so it is a little bit more walking to do to get to it. But is worth it. Again it doesn't have so many paintings in it but it has a lot of sculpture, and it worth a visit.

One of several churches in Antwerp that are really worth a visit. Beautifully preserved with a quiet serenity about it, as it's more austere than others in the city.

This was a little hard to find, but I found it to be the most interesting church in Antwerp because of the fabulous series of 15 paintings (Van Dyck, Reubens, etc.). Baroque splendor.

It's a church, but keep looking for all the detail in and around it and you will be there for hours. Amazing grotto and statue collection near the entrance but the best is inside. Seem to remember this is a heritage site which is well deserved.

I personally like the garden beside the church. It looks mysterious but attractive at the same time. Great place to take picture. The visit is FOC.

The church is amazing, it has a side exhibition and a wonderful garden full with sculptures. Last but not least, it offers WiFi to share their thoughts.

Although somewhat overshadowed by Antwerp's majestic cathedral, for those who love art, St. Paul's should not be overlooked. St. Paul's is a very fine surviving example of a Dominican Baroque church. It's well designed space displays it's largely intact art collection as well as its unique and impressive collection of Baroque sculpture and architectural elements. Not far from the Brabo,... More

I love to visit Antwerp but never knew there was such a lovely church hidden in a small street. The main entry is in a side street but you will find it when you walk around the block. Entry is free and theres a small garden with beautiful statues, the Calvary. Inside the church you will see beauiful wooden and... More

Wandered the shopping areas of Antwerp city center and was making my way back to waterfront and found the backside of the church's little garden entrance. I saw the trip advisor rating and walked around front. What a beautiful church! I was definitely surprised to find (I had thought I would have more access to wifi to plan better, only... More
