  • You should enter-a small door somewhere opd e street corner. A fine courtyard (Calvary?). But then inside: a Domenicanen-church with choir chairs. It seems that the acoustics is phenomenal, but during our visit there was no action. And the paintings: If you free many well-known Flemish painters like Rubens wants to see-> go!

  • Walking through the Centre of Antwerp, we quite accidentally wandered into the Church of St. Paul (Dutch-Sint-Pauluskerk in English-Saint Paul's Church). "A gem of Baroque Gothic box", so it is called and this comparison is not accidental. Built in 1517-71 Gg. in place of the Dominican monastery, he absorbed the beauty of Gothic brabantskoj. The Church of St. Paul kept a collection of paintings that describe the fifteen mysteries of life, death and glorification of Christ. Among them there are and a copy of "the flagellation of Rubens", and "Madonna of the Rosary" by Caravaggio. In the depths of the Temple a stunning altar Rozenkrancaltar. Nearby are the fifteen mysteries Rosenkranz. This eleven paintings of Rubens School Masters Antwerp. Among them are the work of Jordaens, Van Dyck and Rubens. A separate attraction Temple-body. Near the temple there is also a small garden, which is part of the Mount of olives. The entrance to the temple is free.
