St. Michael's is separated from the other grand Cathedrals in Ghent (St. Baavo's, St. Nick's), but it's worth the journey over the bridge, or on your way back from Gravensteen Castle. It's not as cluttered with art, sculptures, or other stuff like the other two,...More

St Michael's Church in Ghent is one of the smaller churches in the city. The interior of the church is quite beautiful and it has a nice array of stained glass windows.

Even though a lot of visitors limit their visit to the Big Tree in Gent (St. Baafs cathedral, Belfort and St. Nicolas church), The St Michaels church should be part of your visit list. Beautiful architecture and splendid works of art, this church is more...More
