St Nicholas' Church

This church in Tournai bluestone is one of the most beautiful examples of the Scheldt Gothic style. One of its unique elements is that the tower is not above the entrance, but above the crossing of the nave and transepts. It functions as a sort of natural lantern as the light shines into the transept from the tower.

Sint-Jacobskerk Gent
The two towers still date from the Romanesque period, but since then the church has undergone much devastation, expansion and renovation.
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.
