  Graceful in midst of heavy traffic: OLV of Genade
by Pavlik_NL

On the "Leien", the inner ringroads of Antwerpen that used to be the town's defensive canal in medieval times, there are two romainc towers rising up in the air as well. This church is however somewhat older then the Saint Georges (Sint Joris). This is the "Onze Lieve Vrouwe van Genade" or in English "Our dear lady of mercy" church. The church is still having churchmesses on Saturday's and Sundays and has a special relation with the Polish community in Antwerpen.
