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.

We've been in three countries on this vacation - and more than a dozen churches. This is the most beautiful one, and in my opinion, the best looking in Antwerp. Highly recommend stopping here. Not far from the Grote Market at all.
