Big and impressive church, in Gothic style. Not much to see, it is not overly decorated. Perhaps during the mass or a pipe organ concert it would be more impressive.

This landmark is a must see in Ghent. It has an interesting history and the architecture is Gothic showing its medieval roots. Its one of the sights in Ghent you should not miss visiting.

Decent church with decent interiors. Nothing much to see or do. Okay for a quick glance or if you want to enjoy some silence.

The facade is the most beautiful thing in the Church. Two tall, slender turrets support the imposing window that dominates the entrance to the Church. The interior is extraordinarily luminous and very sober. We have discovered that, only, a part of the Church is dedicated...More
