Memorials, Cathedral of Our Lady, Antwerp, Belgium

The Cathedral of Our Lady (Antwerp, Belgium) is the largest Gothic church in the Low Countries of Europe. Begun in 1352, it is most famous for its Peter Paul Rubens paintings. What struck me more on my visit was the amazing architecture and the beautiful and somewhat macabre memorials (see above) mounted throughout.
