Located in the heart of Ghent, this beautiful, mostly Gothic structure is an architectural gem revealing various building styles, as it was continually built over the course of 500 years until its completion in 1569. The church normally houses the world renowned ‘Adoration of the Mystic Lamb’; a multi-panelled painting that is considered to be Jan van Eyck’s masterpiece and one of Belgium’s greatest works of art. Don’t miss a walk through the church’s crypt with its traces of the original structure dating from 942 A.D, as well as centuries old books, scrolls, chalices and other fascinating historical artefacts.
