Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal (Cathedral of Our Lady)

100% love it
Gothic greatness with Baroque treasures
Along with the Central Station, this is Antwerp's architectural standout, postioned prominently in the town's centre and rising high above all in its shadows. Built between 1353 and 1533 and then partly reconstructed in the Renaissance style following a fire, the church became the largest Gothic structure in the Netherlands. The interior has a dark but tremendous feel, augmented by four of local boy Peter Paul Rubens's greatest works – The Raising of the Cross, The Descent from the Cross, the Resurrection of Christ and The Assumption of the Virgin — and other paintings (including Frans Floris's The Fall of the Rebel Angels) borrowed from the Royal Museum of Fine Arts during its extensive renovation.
