This church is flooded in light. Amazing restoration after the fire in the late 1960's. Used to be the church of a huge monastery. The monks are gone but the paintings of Rubens and Van Dijck are still there.

Saint Paul’s Church is a oasis of art not only the beautiful altars but every single inch of the gigantic building, inside and outside. I could have spent a whole day exploring its rich museum pieces, and to add the morning there was a mass...More

It was little hard to find where the entrance was. The interior design of church was amazing, a beautiful contrast between black and white. Also the vault was decorated with small golden motifs like stars. Anyone could stay and relax as long as they want...More
