Sint Baafskerk

St. Bavo Church was founded around 960 by monks of St. Baafs Abbey in Ghent, but the oldest part contains building material believed to have come from the Roman Castellum. Painted, medieval tombs have been found in the structure. The church is on the list of Top 100 monuments of the Netherlands mainly because of its nave, transept and tower in the style of the Scheldt Gothic. This church is the only surviving example of that style in the Netherlands. You can visit the church or host an event there.
