The tomb of Rubens is the reason most visitors come to St Jacobskerk. Located in a small chapel behind the high altar, the tomb is adorned with a painting, Our Lady Surrounded by Saints, which Rubens executed specifically for his tomb and which is actually a family portrait, with the master as St George and his wives and father the other figures. The church was the place of worship for the aristocracy and is a showcase of their wealth.
Started in 1491, it took nearly 150 years to build and the result is a Gothic facade cloaking mainly baroque embellishments inside.
