We arrived here late after the tour of Bruges that made us miss our tours inside several monuments. Most museums close very early. We had to satisfy ourselves taking pictures of facades there. Many attractive sculpted works on them.
Het Gravensteen – called the “Castle of the Counts” was once the seat of the Flanders’ counts during the medieval period. The castle was the stronghold of Ghent, built with strong thick walls and an entrance way with a long tunnel leading to the castle. This indeed is the star attraction of the city.
