In the neighbourhood
You are on historic ground here. In the 7th century, Amandus van Gent founded St Bavo’s Abbey here in an attempt to convert the inhabitants of this city of Ganda.
Numerous renowned painters, sculptors and writers went to their final resting place on this 19 metre-high burial mound.
Keep your camera handy! The appearance of the Werregarenstraat changes constantly. That comes as no surprise, given that street artists are free to decorate it as they please. Definitely worth a detour!
