The home of the Augustines was founded in 1296 when the Bishop of Tournai gave these preachers permission to build a monastery. St Stephen"s Church has developed into a popular place of pilgrimage where one will find St Rita"s listening ear.

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.
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-Baafskathedraal Gent
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.
