Fascinating place to be
Feb 2018 • Solo
Wonderful church to visit. There are still masses on Sunday usually at 10 and 11 am and on the typical Christian holidays. The church is decorated beautifully especially the colorful window at the back stands out. I went there in February and even though the heating was on it was still rather chilly.

OUT OF TOWN GEM NOT TO BE MISSED

There are not too many people who know about this place or bother to go there as it is out of Ghent city centre. However, the bus number 38 or 39 goes straight here from Korenmarkt and only takes 20 minutes. It is very much an old style church with two master steeples at the front, one with a clock tower. It is built with terracota brickwork and has a huge glass window fascia in between the two steeples. It has a very old looking interior but this definitely gives it it's charm with huge pillars adorning each side of a decorative alter.
There are some fabulous little caves in the well kept gardens that you can view whilst walking around as they are filled with candles that people light when praying and these are a must see as they are little treasures and so different from anything I have seen before at a church. This is a truly beautiful church and garden and very tranquil in a small hamlet.

Basiliek Oostakker Lourdes

a nice and quiet environment to spend an afternoon in the fall. Beautiful Basiliek, church with twin towers that is, Oostakker Lourdes Grotto where you can pay your respects to Jesus. A nice park to come to peace and afterwards go for a cup of coffe in the old beatuifull tavern next door. Relaxing!
