Castle of Gerald the Devil
Geeraard de Duivelsteen
In the neighbourhood
To solve the permanent lack of space, a modern building for the law courts was built on the edge of the city.
The steeple of St Michael’s Church should have stood out above all the others, but history decided otherwise: the 134 metre high planned ‘monument of triumph’, has remained at a paltry 24 metres.
The city pavilion is one of Ghent's new architectural highlights.
