Antwerp (1)

I’ve always loved Antwerp ever since we came on a day trip to Ghent and were encouraged to visit the Rubenshuis.   We used (hard now to imagine) to drive through the tunnel to have lunch in Antwerp on my birthday, see Rubens’s Descent from the Cross and buy chocolate hands.

I stayed next door to the disused Sint Annagodshuis with its elaborate baroque portal:-

Back to Sint-Carolus Borromeuskerk:-
