The Saint Jacobs church is a typical example of Brabant gothic style. The construction of this three-nave building started in 1491 and after the middle nave and western spiral were completed, the works were discontinued due to lack of funds. The transept was completed from 1552 to 1566. The chancel was built from 1602 to 1656, and the aisles were arched. The interior has baroque style decorations with many famous paintings—'Virgin' by Otto van Veen and 'The Vocation of Saint Peter' by Jordaens. Behind the chancel you see 'The Virgin and the Saints', one of the last paintings by Pieter Paul Rubens.
