St Paul’s Church

Originally, St Paul’s was part of a large Dominican abbey. It was consecrated in 1571 as a replacement for another church. A new Baroque steeple was built after a ravaging fire destroyed the church in 1679. The church's striking interior hosts fifty paintings by renowned Antwerp masters, Rubens, Van Dyck and Jordaens, over 200 sculptures, beautiful Baroque altars and sculpted church furniture, widely considered to be amongst the most beautiful in the world. The organ was built in the 17th century, but has been repeatedly restored and expanded. An eye-catching feature is the 18th century Calvary with sixty life-sized figures, next to the church on the corner of Veemarkt and Zwartzustersstraat.
