St. Peter’s Church
Anyone who thinks that St. Peter’s Church is a church like any other, will be pleasantly surprised. The exterior is remarkably sober, the interior is breathtaking. The showpiece is the pulpit from 1862. Once you enter, let the myths come to you.
Survivor of iconoclasm
How old this oldest church in Turnhout is, remains a mystery. But the result of centuries of work is nothing short of ingenious. The familiar interior especially is a great sight for sore eyes. No trace of devastation during iconoclasm. On the contrary. The pulpit, the high altar, and the sculptures and paintings are of unparalleled beauty. A rich church treasure is also preserved. Don’t tell anyone.
