Antwerp’s Cathedral is a magnificent example of the Late Gothic style of architecture. The church was built between 1352 and 1521, a period of unprecedented social and economic change in Europe that paved the way for Antwerp’s rise. Notes regularly emanate from the magnificent carillon in the tower, which is also the city’s belfry. Interestingly enough, the city’s building regulations stipulate that no building may be taller than the 123-metre Cathedral of Our Lady. The cathedral is an enormous source of pride for locals, who consider this landmark a beacon and the ‘world’s most beautiful tower’.
