Carolus Borromeus Church
Ranked #16 of 169 things to do in Antwerp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 8, 2013

we were having a difficult time finding a city guidebook when we visited this lovely church and found guidebooks for sale inside. This is a former Jesuit church with quite a lot of history. It is located in a small but lovely square that has some nice cafes where we sat and enjoyed our guidebook after our visit to the church.

In terms of size and for that matter the exterior, the church is all right but wait until you walk inside and what an inside it is. Many an art galleries would be envious of this church. The works by Peter Paul Reuben and his disciple is sight to behold. Unfortunately some of the paintings from the ceiling were destroyed during a fire but much remains intact and is worth spending time to see this church.

The Carolus Borromeus Church is next to the canal and you can take a walk alongside it to many restaurants surrounding it.

A visit to Antwerp can never be complete without visiting this treasure. And it's for free, so there is absolutely no excuse not to go and have a look at this beautiful church.
