4/5 (1)

Tucked away in the town's historic district, Saint Bavo's Cathedral or Sint-Baafs Cathedral has been overlooking Ghent for over a thousand years and tells a history like no other.

Gothic architecture, stone facades, narrow stained-glassed windows, an imposing spire and well-kept gardens embellish this 13th-century church. Its welcoming halls invite its visitors to uncover its grand colonnades and tepid rays of light up the cathedral with a warm aura.

Walking through the cathedral's doors leaves visitors mesmerised as they uncover a true masterpiece - The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb -. Also known as the Ghent Altarpiece, this work of art is made up of twelve interior panels featuring humanity's redemption. It was composed by Flemish Primitives, one of the first major oil paintings, a true European treasure.
