Unlike some churches in Antwerp, this one is free to enter. Well worth stopping in as it's beautiful inside and out. The people who look after the church are very helpful.

If you're in old Antwerp...pass by this church since everything is within walking distance. Free entry but not much big as the cathedral. Still very beautiful art work inside.

This church was inspired by the Gesu in Rome and contains some extravagant Baroque art including work by Rubens. It is a must for all visitors.

On a small square just out of the center you will find this magnificent church - worth visiting and listen to a concert there as the acoustics is just superb.
