In the neighbourhood
You are on historic ground here. In the 7th century, Amandus van Gent founded St Bavo’s Abbey here in an attempt to convert the inhabitants of this city of Ganda.
Opposite St Nicholas’ Church, on the other side of the street, is the original 16th-century Masons’ Guild Hall.
A trove of art treasures: 22 altars, a Rococo pulpit in marble and oak and of course the exquisite highlight: "The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb" by the Van Eyck brothers.
