Beguinage Church

The seventeenth-century Beguinage Church has a magnificent baroque façade, after the Italian example. At the time Mechelen's beguines had capital and so were able to commission well-known architects. The plans were drawn up by the Jesuit Pieter Huyssens, but the actual work was overseen by Jacques Francart, who was from Brussels and was court architect to archdukes Albrecht and Isabella. The young Lucas Faydherbe from Mechelen can claim partial responsibility for the interior decoration.

The church is currently closed for renovation.
