Audio Guide to Our Lady Cathedral in Antwerp and its remarkable art treasures. Antwerp is one of those undiscovered gems that are hidden throughout Europe. This guide looks at the art and architecture of the Cathedral in the context of the city's fascinating, turbulent history, providing you a lasting appreciation of the essence of Antwerp and its Cathedral.
This beautiful late Gothic cathedral is a glorious repository of six centuries of Flemish artistic development. Under construction for more than 200 years, the Cathedral endured a catastrophic fire, the Calvinist iconoclasm of 1566, and subsequent gutting by French revolutionaries in the 1790s. In the 20th century it faced neglect and wartime bombings.
Entering Antwerp's restored Cathedral today will take your breath away! M. Jane McIntosh's engaging narration covers:
- Four works by Peter Paul Rubens; others by Murillo, Francken, Van Veen and De Vos.
- Wall paintings, a carved stone altarpiece, and a marble Madonna of the 14th C.
- Stained glass windows dating from as early as 1503.
- A trove of exceptional 17th century sculpture and oak furnishings.
- 19th century neo-Gothic artistry.
Your visit inside the cathedral can be tailored to your interest and schedule by skipping specified tracks.
