“Rubens' design”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

This beautiful Jesuit church is not to be missed when you visit Antwerpen. I was surprised to find out that much of the church's design was done by Flemish painter Peter Paul Rubens. Do not miss the beautiful paintings and decorations.

“Very nice church with lots of Rubens paintings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Not only the facade of the building is nice, also the interior is worth a look. You can enter for free.

“An Underappreciated Church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2013

This is a lovely church with a grand interior. Everyone flocks to visit the Cathedral nearby (5 Euros for entry) but this one is free to enter and also has works by Rubens - he designed the altarpiece (you can see the sketches in Rubenshuis) and the work was done by his studio.
