The home of the Augustines was founded in 1296 when the Bishop of Tournai gave these preachers permission to build a monastery. St Stephen"s Church has developed into a popular place of pilgrimage where one will find St Rita"s listening ear.

Sint-Jacobskerk Gent

Lam Gods Gent
The Van Eyck brothers painted this unique altarpiece in 1432. It is the highlight of the Flemish Primitives and a milestone in art history.
Sint-Michielskerk Gent
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.
