Baroque pearl in a Gothic architecture

The Antwerp church of Saint-Paul’s is located in the old city, a stone’s throw from the river Scheldt, in the district where the sailors used to live. The church was built in the 16th century as a Dominican monastery church.

It is a late Gothic church at the Veemarkt in Antwerp, the heart of the sailors’ district. After an eventful history, the church has a particularly valuable art heritage. It is dedicated to the apostle Paul and depends on the diocese of Antwerp.

The site that you can visit includes a church with cloisters, a blissful Lourdes garden next to the monastery ruins and a unique Calvary garden with more than 60 statues.
