About the collection

"Heaven on earth", "the 8th wonder of the world"... There were too few words in the 17th century to describe this church that seems to stand on an Italian piazza. It was built for and by the Jesuits at the time of the flourishing Counter Reformation. Peter Paul Rubens played an important role in it as painter-decorator-architect in the tower, facade, the high altar, vault stucco and the "Houtappel"- or Our Lady's chapel. This is the baroque and the Rubens church of the Low Lands, even if a fire had already destroyed its 39 ceiling paintings. Surprising: You will find an especially rich lace museum there.More about Sint-Carolus Borromeuskerk Antwerpen
