Saint Charles Borromeo's Church (Sint-Carolus Borromeuskerk)
This church is the ultimate Rubens church. The painter contributed to a significant part of the decorative façade and the tower’s crowning. The Jesuits built this characteristic baroque church between 1615 and 1621. The apse of the main altar, the Maria Chapel and the many statues and carvings stand witness to the splendour of a time gone by. You will need help entering the church via a steep portable ramp. The nave, side aisles and transept chapels with the majority of the paintings and works of art are easily accessible with a wheelchair. The crypt, antechamber and side chamber are only accessible via stairs.
