Lovely old cobble lanes with a good variety of restaurants.Can recommend t'klok huys. Good traditional and local food especially the fish timbale and Belgian stew, delicious. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Menu in English and although specials were not, the staff were pleased to advise.

It took us a while to find exactly what was meant by this district of 17c small houses, the homes of Ghent's weavers. Eventually, after much walking we think we covered most of the Patersol area, but a good deal has been renovated and I would hestitate to go out of my way to find it again.

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.
