Church in Mechelen

This breathtakingly huge Brabantine Gothic church has suffered numerous reconstructions, notably after bombing during WWII. Nonetheless it retains a very impressive interior, and in the south transept you'll find the 1619 Rubens triptych De wonderbare visvangst (The Miraculous Fish Catch).

The triptych is right beside the fine organ that is often played by practicing students on Thursday afternoons.
