St Peter's Abbey
In the neighbourhood
Dynamic and highly individual. That’s Ghent and it also describes its museum of contemporary art.
At the end of the last century, this friary of the Calced Carmelites was fully restored.
A trove of art treasures: 22 altars, a Rococo pulpit in marble and oak and of course the exquisite highlight: "The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb" by the Van Eyck brothers.
