St Nicholas' Church
In the neighbourhood
The two towers still date from the Romanesque period, but since then the church has undergone much devastation, expansion and renovation.
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 Carmelite Monks form a living community in Ghent.
