Antwerp Summer Trip II
Our Sunday in Antwerp was kind of cloudy and a bit rainy, but it didn’t stop us from continuing with our visits. After a capuccino and a sweet, we headed to the Museum aan de Stroom but found a really special place on our way there: the Begijnhof, like the one in Amsterdam, one of my favourite corners of the city I must say. And a hidden beauty. These places were built as religious forts to protect people during the war, specially for nuns and war widows. They are still well cared, beautiful and extremely peaceful. I really loved finding one in Antwerp as well.
The MAS is in the port, in a strategic situation. The architecture project of the museum is brilliant and I was lucky to have an architect with me to explain every single detail of the building. Seems to be a perfect puzzle where every piece has its meaning, I was amazed by the result even if I’m not an expert in the field. The different rotated cubes, the wavy glass and the views make it a wonder that worths a visit. Simply wonderful!
We still have a lot to discover, but Antwerp is not going to move.
