Fodor's Review

Peter Paul Rubens is buried in the white sandstone St. Jacob's Church. A painting depicting him as St. George posed between his two wives, Isabella Brant and Helena Fourment, hangs above his tomb. The three-aisle church blends late-Gothic and Baroque styles; the tombs are a who's who of prominent 17th-century Antwerp families. A notable visitor (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart) allegedly played the organ here during his 1727 stay in the city.
