During the years she lived in Mechelen, Margaret of Austria had a special relationship with the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, which no longer exists. It was located close to the Palace of Margaret of Austria. A wooden bridge connected Margaret’s palace with her own prayer space in the medieval church. Her intestines were buried here after her death. When the church was demolished at the end of the eighteenth century, the parish church relocated to the vacant, Baroque Jesuit church on the opposite side of the street. The lead urn with Margaret’s intestines moved to the “new” Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, where it was given a new place, near the main altar.
