The Carmelite Monks form a living community in Ghent. The 18th-century monastery church can be visited freely and the adjoining garden by request.

Those who enjoy the exceptional peace and quiet can even stay the night here. The guesthouse makes an original base for a stay in the city.


Carmelitana is the bookshop/publishing house of the Flemish Carmelite monks. The shop can be found in Burgstraat in Ghent, near the Carmelite monastery. If you are looking for meaning, spirituality and personal development, you are guaranteed to find something in the wide range of books, abbey products, greeting cards, gifts, religiosa, CDs and DVDs.
