Antwerp’s churches continue to inspire with this beautiful Gothic Church, which is as famous for it’s paintings as it is for it’s architecture. It has a bonus attraction: the courtyard by its side is a wonderful cavalry, showing 63 statues depicting the last days of Christ. Admission to the premises is free, and the tranquillity of the place is priceless.

  • Super beautiful building. Inside only has minimal information about what you’re seeing.

  • I'm not a religious nutcase nor am I related to the hunchback of Notre-Dame. Although I don't need to be either one to state that Saint Paul's church is impressive. Thus, I'll reveal its essence in a nutshell. Locked out of heaven and roaming the earth's surface aimlessly, I was looking for shelter as we all do after we've slain a dragon. On my quest, by chance, I stumbled upon an open door that happened to be the entrance to a baroque church. There are quite a few paintings that were made by the Flemish masters like Jordaens, Van Dyck and Rubens hanging on the walls. These artistic images were burnt onto my retina. The latter of these artists is the 17th-century equivalent of a modern day rock star. The white walls and the golden stars scattered across the church's white ceilings give the interior a fresh, optimistic and youthful vibe. Adjoining this artistic environment, I found a cosy calvary with impressive statues. A walk around the block will get you to a secluded garden (St. Paulusstraat 20 – 24, Antwerp). In the shadows of the ruins, attached to Saint Paul's, you can relax with an excellent book. This sanctuary welcomes all. Each prayer will be accepted, and every wish fulfilled. So do ask for that Aston Martin. If you aren't interested in the above, it might be useful to know that this priestly scene is appropriate to hide from the rain or the cops for that matter.

  • Near the river Scheldt you find Saint Paul’s Church, the former Dominican church, which was completed in 1639. The church's amazing surrounding sculptures & interior hosts fifty paintings by renowned Antwerp artists, Rubens, Van Dyck and Jordaens, over 200 sculptures, beautiful Baroque altars and sculpted church furniture considered to be amongst the most beautiful in the world.

  • It's got this super creepy courtyard on its side that's straight out of bloodborne or dark souls 3. Then there are houses literally attached to the church walls and literally with windows opening onto the cemetery and super creepy court yard. Inside you'll find the beautiful black and white motif throughout cathedrals in belgium. Keep in mind the interiors of cathedrals are all modern and have been frequently renovated throughout the centuries. You're not viewing the old historical interior. It's all renovated and modern. I mean this shouldn't be surprising because even modern paint cracks and peels within decades. The last part to mention is to keep an eye out near the middle where there are 4 wooden colored busts of men... And below them are glass windowed boxes containing some of their bones.....

  • We stayed in the Hotel Antigone 500' feet away from some of the most glorious bells we have ever heard.
