St Peter's Abbey
In the neighbourhood
Above the Ghent skyline towers the Old Belfry, lonely and grey, an iconic symbol of the past.
In his 1767 building application, the German Count Emmanuel Ignace d'Hane asked for permission to rebuild the front of his house, located in the Veldstraat.
Ghent has something from every period of history and that also applies to the STAM - Ghent City museum: the 14th-century abbey, the 17th-century monastery and the new 21st-century development together form the Ghent City museum.
