Our Lady's Cathedral
Antwerp’s pride is its Cathedral, the largest Gothic church in the Low Countries. It was finished in 1521 concluding a construction period of nearly 170 years. Its northern tower (123m / 404ft) is ‘stone lacework’ and it dominates the skyline. Inside the seemingly unlimited space takes you into a different dimension.
What we see today is partly Baroque, partly 19th century neo-Gothic. We can admire four works by Peter Paul Rubens, including The Raising of the Cross and The Descent from the Cross, which are world renowned cultural heritage. Many other works of art, the furniture, the stained-glass windows,… all deserve our attention.
