The entrance of the Basilica at the square 'Keizer Karelplein' is adorned with statues. The statue of Jesus Christ can be seen at the centre with those of Peter and Servatius on his side. The arches hold the twelve apostles who are leaning on four great prophets from the Old Testament: Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel.
