20 Het Steen Castle Crucifix in Antwerp, Belgium

From 1300 until 1827, the Het Steen castle was a jail. Rich prisoners were housed in the right wing with beautiful river views and served expensive wine. Poor prisoners were kept in unsanitary squalor and tortured. Those sentenced to public execution said their last prayer in front of this crucifix just inside the castle’s entrance.
