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.

Some of the churches in Antwerp charge you for a visit, but this one is free, It's worth to have look around and it's beautiful decorated. So if you are in the aera, do visit this one between breakfast and lunch.
