I love seeing these historic churches and this one is no exception. Take in the marble and stained glass and enjoy the art work.

This church is amazing. I spend 30 minutes inside just marveling at the statutes and paintings. Photography is permitted and you will have an opportunity to take a few amazing ones

Nice old gothic church. Peaceful. Half under restoration inside, so less to see than normal in a place this size. Not open until 1400 on Mondays. No entry fee.

This impressive cathedral is home to one of the "three towers" of Ghent. The interior is airy and peaceful.

A beautiful historic town with an historic church a the centre of Ghent life in the early days. It looks grandly over the town centre that was built around it and people flock to this church to this day to give thanks for our freedom.

but was closed at 19:00 and I could not walk in. My recommendation: in the summer please have longer visiting hours. Maybe next time

Every other weekend there is a nice, not too large though, arts and antique market in part of this church that they are still renovating. If going on Sunday morning, you cannot enter the renovated part of the church.

This church was a treat. Very quiet and peaceful and not too many people around We walked around and enjoyed the spiritual ambience and then sat for a bit. Beautiful interiors and the stained glass windows were spectacular.. Catching the sunlight perfectly. We recommend this church to everyone to spend a quiet, peaceful moment.
