A pinnacle of Gothic architecture, the Cathedral was at the time of completion one of the tallest buildings in the world, and still holds that title within the city. Despite having lost much of it’s original art, the cathedral is still a treasure. The star attractions are the Rubens paintings: Descent of the Cross, Elevation of the Cross and the Resurrection Triptych. Visitors often comment on the exceeding elegance of the building, the lovely stained glass windows, it’s beautiful statuary and the magnificent altar. It’s one of the world’s most beautiful churches.

Hands-down one of the most breathtaking architectural experiences you will ever see. Notwithstanding the 400-500 year-old pieces of original Dutch masters artwork displayed within, and the wealth of information and background provided by the local guides. Entry fees apply, but for a regular adult this was only around €7. Check my pictures attached this review for some visual context. Please don't give this a miss if you're in the area!
I loved the English guided tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable, kind and genuinely cared about people in the group. He revealed so much valuable information that gave me better understanding of space, it's history and the masterpieces exhibited there. Unfortunately, I haven't checked the guide name.
I will definitely recommend you to visit here when you are in Antwerp. The entrence fee is €6. One of my most wonderful place among my visits. Amazing architecture and Mind blowing paintings of Ruben's.
Well worth a visit and the entrance fee. Apart from a beautiful cathedral there are a large number of altar paintings on exhibit from Rubens and other painters before and after him. There are also some interesting explanations about the renovation of the wall and ceiling paintings. Take anywhere from 1-2 hours to take most of it in.
The cathedral is definitely a landmark monument. When you come to Antwerp you should visit !! It's a beautiful example of gothic architecture and it holds a lot of paintings of amongst other Rubens ,the historical artist of Antwerp, himself. Many of the locals are proud about this building and they should be :)
