In the neighbourhood
Opposite St Nicholas’ Church, on the other side of the street, is the original 16th-century Masons’ Guild Hall.
Originally a 14th-century castle, the restored Hof van Rijhove illustrates the development of seven centuries of domestic culture in an authentic Ghent mansion.
With its thick walls, battlements, corner turrets and embrasures, the five-sided barracks still look above all like a fortified stronghold.
