Saint Paul's Church, Antwerp

Saint Paul's Church, Antwerp

The Saint Paul's Church of Antwerp has it's own interesting history – after surviving a couple of revolutions, fires and lootings it still managed to save a very rich collection of 17th century paintings of Flemish masters such as Rubens, Van Dyck and Jordaens but is best known for the hundreds of sculptures it houses. Build by the Dominican order in 1571 Saint Paul's Church didn't manage to "preserve" it's main tower which was rebuild in 1679 in Baroque style.
