In the historical center of Antwerp there are five famous monumental churches.
Besides, other art-historically important churches, both in the historic center and in the Antwerp districts, are open to tourists.
Although not all of them are within walking distance from the river Scheldt, they are all within easy reach. Just as the ‘big five’ they are loaded with history and art-historical importance. Each has its own character. Each of these religious monuments invites exploration.
You can be sure you will be astonished more than just once.
Entering a church is coming into the other dimension of life; it is becoming conscious of the loving presence of God, the almighty creator of heaven and earth. In such a ‘house of God’ you can feel at home with all your joys and sorrows, dreams and ideals. And above all: do not forget that you too “are a sanctuary of God, and the Spirit of God dwells in you” (1 Cor 3:16)
May these impressive churches, these ‘houses of God’, also inspire your sense of life…!
