Our Lady of St Peter's Church

This imposing church was built on the foundations of the previous Romanesque abbey church. If it reminds you of Rome, it is no coincidence: the architect Pieter Huyssens was inspired by the great Italian Renaissance churches. The interior is impressive and the art treasures are unique. Not to be missed.

In the neighbourhood


Sint-Pietersabdij Gent
The refectory wing of St Peter’s Abbey is authentically medieval.
Lam Gods Gent
The Van Eyck brothers painted this unique altarpiece in 1432. It is the highlight of the Flemish Primitives and a milestone in art history.
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.
