St Bartholomew’s church

The Adoration of the Shepherds
Abraham Janssens
Aanbidding der herders

An artist from Antwerp painted the new-born Baby Jesus surrounded by the shepherds. Reminiscent of Caravaggio, the Babe is bathed in light, so the figures surrounding Him light up while others remain shrouded in darkness.

St Bartholomew’s church

This strikingly beautiful church dedicated to St Bartholomew is decorated with colourful murals and a magnificent interior, including one of Belgium’s finest pulpits from the baroque period.
