Cathedral of Our Lady

After 169 years of construction the cathedral of Antwerp finally dominated Antwerp’s skyline in 1521 with a height of 123 metres. It was and still is the biggest Gothic building of the Low Countries. The Cathedral is a huge treasury of works of art. Eye-catchers include two masterpieces by Rubens: The Raising of the Cross and The Descent from the Cross. Currently the Cathedral is hosting a splendid exhibition, called Reunion, which showcases altarpieces from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in their original location. Absolutely worth visiting!
