This is a lovely very old part of Ghent with beautiful old buildings a narrow cobbled streets, just the sort off place I love to wander around and explore. There are also many nice restaurants and bars in this area. Very atmospheric and a must when visiting Ghent.

During our walk in town we arrived at this part of the city. Little houses that go back in time, nice and quiet.

We wandered through the Patershol area and found it pleasant enough but fairly deserted. There did seem to be a lot of restaurants in the area with interesting menus but we only stopped for a drink and not a meal.
