I didn't know about this little-visited church until we stumbled on it during our city walk. What a gem! There was a free concert while we were there which was lovely. There is also a placard in the church describing a painting from 1636 that...More

Go and enjoy the peace and quiet once you leave the street and bustling city, first in the enclosed garden and later in the splendour of the church - breathtaking !

A church that doesn't charge an entry fee...how novel! Ok so I'm still peeved about the cathedral gouge. But.....here's the rub and it's got nothing to do with money....this church is a huge surprise as you enter via a largely unimpressive exterior the inside is...More

Inside the beautiful paintings of Rubens, Jordaens, Van Dyck (and, just to let you know, Napoleon took some to France and the Caravaggio went to Vienna...) and don't forget to visit the 'garden' with the beautiful statues

Really nice church with beautiful paintings and sculptures in the inside. On its right there is a small courtyard filled with statues that really impresses you. It is also free, not like the big cathedral
