Old Fish Market
In the neighbourhood
Above the Ghent skyline towers the Old Belfry, lonely and grey, an iconic symbol of the past.
In 1909 the former post office building was located on a busy crossroads of access roads into the city.
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.
