The Vleeshuis (Slaughterhouse) is another excellent example of gothic architecture in Antwerp. You'll find it along the embankment of the river Scheldt behind the Stadhuis (city hall) and a walking distance from the Cathedral . In fact, it was built in 1501 by the same architect who designed the Cathedral. It was used as a slaughterhouse, and at the time it was the only place where meat was sold. Now, the building belongs to the City and it is the home of a museum for applied art, archaeology and local history.
