Begun in the 11th century, the church wasn't finished until 1672. What a fine Gothic architecture! There is also great art by Anthony Van Dyck, Otto van Veen and Jan Boeckhorst.

This is actually a very large church and, although I have seen much better elsewhere, this is well worth visiting. From memory, it was open in the afternoons only when we were there

Apparently the oldest in the region, dating back to medieval times. Like many of the others I've visit, a church that is beautiful to behold.

As this is a must see attraction in the heart of Ghent I find it hard to believe that it wasn't open during the winter. It stands high and proud alongside the canal and St Michael's Bridge and is a colossus from the outside. Such...More

One of the best churches of the city. Made from grey stone, it's made in the classical style of Flanders and even if not very unique still you will appreciate it a lot. Come and make a visit.
