  • There is an interesting monument next to the entrance of Antwerp Cathedral (Onze lieve vrouwekathedraal) dedicated to the builder and architect Pieter Appelmans. This is a four piece monument designed by Belgian sculptor Jef Lambeaux in 1935 and features bronze figures representing builders, stone masons and architect Pieter Appelmans, who is credited with finishing the church construction after the passing of his father and original church architect, Jans Appelmans. The information plaque doesn't include English so it is best to read up on the monument online or in a travel book if you want to know more about it during your visit. It is an interesting monument if you are interested in the history of the church and can see conveniently before entering and enjoying the Cathedral of Our Lady in Antwerp.
  • To the right of the entrance to the cathedral on the square saw this interesting sculptural group of bronze workers. The cathedral was built. Pope Jan and son Peter Apppelmans were architects who built the cathedral in 15-16 centuries. And the construction took 170 years. That's the memory of their hard work and appeared here monument. Four man plow over the erection of the second tower.
