    Lovely Gothic church that dominates the narrow square in front of it. It was originally built in the Romanesque style, but all that remains of this time period is the crypt. Check out the altar art pieces which include a Van Eyck masterpiece - "The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb"

    Great cathedral in a wonderful location. Another Gothic monument in Ghent, but with some Baroque and Rococo elements inside. Also famous for the wonderful painting "Het Lam God's" (the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb) by Hubert and Jan Van Eyck. I can look at this painting for hours, even if that is unpractical due to the crowded situation in the small room where it is displayed

    This is an astoundingly beautiful piece of architecture and something which simply must be seen on any tour (guided or self) of Gent.
