Saint James Church - Sint Jacobs Kerk, Antwerp: 10 reviews and 16 photos
If I had not looked for it I might not have found it. This church is located just outside the touristic part of the centre, in a rather neglected looking neighbourhood. This is a real shame, as it's an absolute beauty and for me one of the highlights of this city. It's a late-Brabantine Gothic church with an unfinished tower. I found the door closed, but inside is, among other things, the grave of painter P.P. Rubens.
Opposite the church was a big space where, as it seems, something's going to be build. I hope it'll add something positive to this part of the city as it should be bursting with activity.
