Hof van Rijhove
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.
Numerous renowned painters, sculptors and writers went to their final resting place on this 19 metre-high burial mound.
Cosy up on the bench along the Lys and enjoy the marvellous view of the Great Butchers’ Hall and the renovated Old Fish Market.
