Borgerhout – Saint John the Evangelist church

Borgerhout Sint-Jan

Neo-Romanesque church, built by architect F. Baeckelmans (1890). The ground plan features a basilical cross, with striking semi-circular structures and merging arches. The triforium (gallery) encompasses the whole church. The tower is particularly robust. Simple interior decoration. There is a unique set of stations of the cross (J.W. Rosier, 1908), painted on brass with brass frames. There are 16th and 18th century paintings by P. Thijs and W.J. Herreyns respectively. Anneessen organ from 1895.
