Church
“Just a stone’s throw from the Schelde river, St. Paul’s Church is a standout example of Gothic architecture, topped with an ornate Baroque tower. The interior is richly decorated in the Baroque style as well, with impressive columns, a leaf motif, and rare works of art by some of the most famous Flemish painters. While visiting St. Paul’s be sure to stop outside and admire The Calvary, a group sculpture consisting of 63 life-sized statues of angels, prophets, and other religious figures. Watch out for: the main altar. Opening hours: not sure, but generally you'll find the door open on weekends before lunchtime. ”
